🍬 Some little grogged porcelain treats that I dropped off on Sunday for @peckhamcraftweekend 🍬  The exhibition will be running 10th-13th May in the Copeland Gallery as part of London Craft Week and I’ll have some pieces on display as well as a few things like these in the shop.  I’m going to miss out on the private view (too busy cleaning France out of pastries) but I’m looking forward to having a snoop around on the weekend.

Not intended but maybe looking at it now subconsciously inspired by the fish man in The Shape Of Water 🐟 #sexyfishbowl
🌰 Dinner set in rusty red stoneware 🌰 This clay makes such a mess and I sanded off a fair bit of my palm throwing it but the unglazed exterior feels so nice it’s totally worth it. I’m hoping to show some sets like this @thekilnrooms Clay Store in Peckham from July - September.
🌥Cracked and a little bloaty (am I right guys) but a good first experiment with a shape I’m excited to refine a bit more 🌥  I’ll be doing a sample sale @mercatometropolitano on August 4th with some major discounts on test pieces and seconds if you want to help me not to die in a pot avalanche. Please help.
Must be mates 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ If anything these pieces have been a lesson in how even 50 degrees difference in firing can affect a clay body. At a slightly lower temperature it fires to a cool grey, but at the 1290c we take the studio kilns to it becomes a warm sandy buff.
