Yesterday was a bit manic (I spent the day teaching, went straight from school to another one to run a Numicon workshop and went straight from there to a two hour evening class) but culminated in leisure! Our local grammar school runs adult classes every November and I signed up for the ceramics one. It's just for three evenings in total.
After rolling out a piece of clay, we pressed lace, dried orange slices and other bits n pieces into the clay to create texture. We then wrapped it around a tube and created a cylindrical pot.
I then had a bit of a play, layering snippets of clay, and created a book cover. I'd like to incorporate my textile work into my clay pieces so made three buttons and saved the piece I cut these from to layer over a stitched and needle-felted piece.
AEDM day 9 started early as I woke in the night with chest pain (I've got a cold!...Again!!!) I need some ideas for next week's clay class ... well, I need to refine my ideas as I only have two weeks to do the work! After a bit of a hunt on the internet I found this fabulous work by Elizabeth Howe...
... GoRGeouS! I also found a blog stocked full of great inspiration - I love so much of the artists' work that Sara features. I now have plans for next week in my notebook :)
