Glazed Works Ready for the Kiln…

Usually I create sculptural ceramic artworks… but lately have felt inclined to create some more functional/bread and butter style lines of work. This has been a combination of both financial necessity and recent trips overseas, such as Japan and Korea, where functional ceramics are viewed as both works of art and as everyday objects that make life more enjoyable.

In earlier postings featuring condiment dishes and trays, and teabowls/teapots the greenware was shown as works in progress. But now the glazed works are ready to go into the kiln within the next few days. Hopefully the results will be great.

This is a test batch, with four different glaze combinations, so if all goes well I can glaze lots more.

I hope to consign these wares in some local gift/kitchenware stores and sell some on Etsy.

  1. I have worked in clay for many years. Both functional and sculptural. I found when I did the art fairs, that functional was popular with the public. However when I started doing hand built primitive fired peaces they were even more popular. I do functional now only for my own personal use. Pictures of your work looks good. Good luck with your sales.

  2. Hi Eloise, thanks for the comment. I also do some pit & smoke firing which I really enjoy (you can view by using the tag cloud to the right). This work is a bit of an experiment and side step to what I usually make. Its also refreshing to do something different 🙂
