:: Little Lion Love

It has been a long time since I have created something in clay that I am truly excited about! 
So much so that this Little Lion vase is not even finished.
It still has to dry out before a bisque fire and how am I going to glaze it?

I was teaching my group of Yr 7's on how to make a wrap vase, I always make a version to demonstrate the technique but rarely finish what I make...but not this time!

Certainly inspired by a bit of mid century ceramics, don't you think?

I will update you soon on Little Lion's journey through the kiln, many blessing to the kiln gods that it doesn't crack or break!




PS: 
the latest issue of Est magazine is out! 
I warn you, you may need to sit down with a cuppa and the cone of silence over your head, it's full of loveliness!

  2. GORGEOUS!

    I would so love to get my hands on clay! I used to go to pottery classes in the 70s when I was about six. I remember wearing patent clogs and making crazy things. I loved it. I wish I could go back. If only there were old fashioned pottery classes like that now-a-days ... maybe there are?

    I hope you have some pottery classes in your area @MMMC, it would be worth investigating? If you were in Melb, we'd make a class together!
    I hope to make more, still feeling the good clay vibe so I will let you know Kylie :)
    Donna, Dana and Nick, your ace!
