Greenware mugs made from recycled clay blends. They're all made from varying amounts of off-cuts from the safari tableware, mixed with some coarse recycled clay. My intention before the end of the year is to have a couple of glazes for these which will match the safariware well. Possibly mimicking the colour tones of the stripes. An off-white and a very dark brown/black. It has been difficult finding the time to glaze test this year. Currently I have about 2 days or less to work on my own ceramics each week. ⠀
One thing I'd love to try is actually reducing the recycled clay to dust and composing a glaze made from it, therefore the waste clay being used in every way possible. It's a bit of an preoccupation of mine, to re-purpose, and reuse waste. It takes much time to prepare the waste. You may or may not know that clay itself has the ingredients to make a glaze, just not in the correct proportions. Many glazes will pretty much straight up contain clay, and varying amounts of other kinds of rock. The right proportions in the clay and rock of silica and alumina, and materials that help the mix fire to a particular temperature will form a glass or glaze. I hope one day to have the time to try this, along with many other experiments!
Two pillar jars with little lids resting upon an internal gallery. Old pots that I’d like to revisit once I’m settled into a studio, although the lids and their knobs might change to the style I’ve developed since. Throwing a gallery inside such a narrow pot can be tricky and these forms do test me. I often wonder if I could just attach a coil of clay inside the pot and throw that into the ledge the lids sits upon.
The way I make vessels with lids now negates this, as the lids simply slot onto a simple cylindrical for but it does mean they look completely different. Lidded forms are amongst the most varied in the world of usable pots, there are so many different ways lids and the bodies can interlock, not to mention then the shapes of the bodies and lids themselves. I’ve kept mine relatively simple, especially the newer forms with the concave lids and straight sides. This doesn’t mean they are fast to put together, in fact they’re some of the most time consuming pieces in my range of pots to make likely because I obsessively have to trim every surface of the exterior form until everything fits and lines up as perfectly as I can get it. This slower pace of work is something I do look forward to and the idea of finishing a whole batch of store jars is amongst the most satisfying of tasks there is.
