I spent the day with a group of students working at the University of Plymouth. I dreamt up Creative Opportunities Day 5 or 6 years ago as a way of getting students to work along side lecturers and under graduates using professional standard facilities and processes. This year was particularly successful, I just love the old style wooden block type, the outcomes have a quality that is really unique. Apart from print the other workshops included photography, (old school photographic paper and wet chemicals), Fine Art, Drama, Building and Illustration. There will be an exhibition of students work at the end of June in the Scott Building, always a very high end event.

I just love the way the glaze has worked on these two pots. I used a textured wall paper roller to make the patterning on the pots and sprayed sections building up layers. The temoku has worked really well with the textures leaving that very attractive black edging. Up close and in the flesh the surface looks like abstract painting, almost Rothko’esk.
I am happy with how my work is coming out, the gas kiln is very effective, the reduction is working really well.
Last session this term next week, two more large chargers are in and cooling at the moment. Heres hoping.

The new gas kiln has worked its magic.
