My piece for the Creative Sparks event on the 5th June is ready – at last. It just needs the addition of 450ml of water to each bowl…. and then for the water to work it’s magic over the 5 hours….
The first bowl is sun dried clay (1/3 earthenware / 2/3 stoneware mix), the second bowl is a bonfire fired, the third biscuit fired in an electric kiln (1000 degrees), the fourth is glazed with a clay slip from Newton Park Campus – the site of the exhibition / event (1290 degrees) and the last is glazed with a copper glaze (1290 again). They are all held on a copper tray made from an old copper boiler…..
