Bigger pots

It was time :) This summer will be 4 years that I started doing pottery, tackling throwing after a year of playing around with slabs.

And orchid pots

Thought this blood grass was a goner, till I stopped submerging it in water.

A lemon tree:

Sprinkled blue

I have started using a new clay (GB8 from Solargil) in our workshop, all thanks to Herta, and the result is much lighter cups!
And I tried new color combinations, but I think I'll stick with the white. In pottery fairs it doesn't look appealing, but it works best on the table.

Some white Ti cups of the same batch

And jugs.

Cosmic glaze

This weekend we went to a pottery fair in Dourdan. About twenty ceramists showcased their work in the old market hall, just in front of the castle, a temporary home (or prison) to many historical figures.
We bought two lovely vessels, by Lluis Soler.

His work makes me think about constellations and nebulas, drinking tea becomes an outer space adventure :)
