Ceramic Workshop

Hello! Me and a friend from my course organised a ceramic workshop for everyone on our row. It was nice to spend a day out of the studio learning a new skill. It was really fun and i am keen to finish my ceramic makes. I made a few tiles using (i think) stoneware clay and then decorated them with embossed papers, smashed sea shells and mark making. 

I also made a vase and with left over clay, i made a food bowl for Ruby! I didn't add markings on my vase as i wanted it to be smooth. For ruby's bowl I used lasor cut wooden letters and pressed them into the clay. I aim to paint them both after firing.

My ceramic makes will now dry out over the couple of days and then they will have their first biscuit firing at 1000 degree celsius!!
