After reading previous posts you will know that I am participating in a challenge on Facebook where potters are asked to post three pot pictures for five days and also nominate another to do the same each day – so I thought I would also share these pictures with my wordpress readers – that’s you 🙂
I am taking a nostalgic approach to this challenge and am sharing pictures that reflect my development over the years…yesterdays post showed pots from my 2nd & 3rd years at Uni while the previous post featured pots with modelled wildlife on them, illustrating my nature influences – these nature influences remained, and continue to remain, but have evolved to become more abstract.
Today’s images are from my Honours year at Uni – 2004. It was this year that I began to to experiment with pit firing for the first time whilst exploring the function of pottery in contemporary society. To this end my work began to evolve from a functional form to a more abstract form, as illustrated by the images.
The images are not great quality…. they were taken in 2004 before I knew much about photography and before I had a great camera…. but they show the development of the work

Beautiful volcanic glaze! I’ve never had the pleasure to work with it- it creates such a unique texture. Best of luck on the FB challenge!
thanks McCallister Sculpture – it is a great glaze, and also very versatile 🙂
Thanks for the reply Dawn. Would you happen to know if it’s a pretty common glaze or a specialty one? I’d love to experiment with it!
