Lasting Impressions of Autumn

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.

Emily Bronte

(1818-1848)

I’ve been lucky enough to continue my work in ceramics with the help of a good friend, and fellow artist Wendy Dunt.

These ceramic tiles have been made using paper clay.  As you will know, I’m fascinated by impressions of existence and before these were glazed you had to look hard to see the very faint lines on the clay.  They have been bisque fired first and then glazed with the beautiful Celadon glaze, it’s one of my favourite glazes.  It’s an interesting chemical transformation as the glaze is actually a dark red before firing and then transforms into this beautiful green glaze.  They are so fragile that it’s going to be quite a challenge to frame them but I’m looking forward to seeing how they look once they are framed.  My thoughts are gathering pace about how they will look once they are complete.

I’m hoping to exhibit these in January, details of the venue to follow soon!
