December already, and the Brewery Craft Market got the Christmas spirit off to a fine start, despite the atrocious weather and associated traffic! Fortunately ceramics is not an activity too dependent on the weather and this Autumn feels to have been productive. Essentially I have been learning to work with a more colourful palette of porcelain slips, oxides and my existing glazes. I showed some of my first results at the Brewery Craft Market at the end of November and the response was very encouraging. It’s early days yet, but things definitely feel positive.

My interest in more ‘paintily’ designs, using coloured porcelain slips over a craft crank or New Drayton stoneware body is now firmly set to continue. I feel this route has much more to offer and am looking forward to building on the start provided by the pots shown here.

Don’t really have more to say, right now. Just aware there is a long way to go and I’m impatient to get moving.
