This is a close relative to the image I posted earlier. The only difference is the oxides used in the base glaze. Here the oxides are rutile and iron or more precisely titanium and iron and in the previous post it’s cobalt and rutile. Don’t you think rutile makes everything better. This piece can be found in my Shopify site. ✌️

And just like that, I woke up feeling better yesterday.
Depression is illogical. I have to do my best to navigate it with the understanding that it will pass. Because it always does.
Living with bipolar II is complicated...and has changed as I’ve gotten older. I don’t know if I’ll ever “figure it out” and I’m trying to embrace that and be ok with it.
Thank you for your patience with me and all my messy humanness.☺️

Thanks so much for all of your feedback on the last post 🔥 it was bloody incredible ⠀
We thought we’d kick things off showing you one of our beautiful monochrome Granby rock fireplaces installed at a lovely home 💯 📷 Emmauelis Stasitis⠀
This project was via @hut_architecture ⠀
The way in which we work does vary depending on the product. Sometimes it’s via an online order (granbyworkshop.co.uk), other times we create bespoke items made to order and thirdly we also work with architects or interior designers directly to collaborate on a project. ⠀
Keeping it varied like this is the reason why we have items both in stock and made to order. It means as a small scale manufacturer we can distribute both large and small orders of the same quality ⠀

Happy #moodiemonday! I am still alive and have been working nonstop in the studio for the past month, and I’ve got another month of daily work to go. I have finished and shipped all of the Mustache Moodie preorders, and hope to have my current wholesale orders out this week and next, and then I’ll be working on the Halloween Mini preorders. I am planning a shop update around the first of December, and if all goes well, I hope to have one or two more before the end of the holiday shopping/shipping season. I’ll be posting more regularly once I’ve caught up a bit. Also, you may notice there’s a new color! The earthy red-orange terracotta is a temporary substitute for my brick red until I can get a reliable supply of the latter back next year.

Thinly thrown beakers, swipe to see the same form sliced in half when freshly made on the wheel. I don’t do this much these days, cutting pots in half, but back when I was learning how to throw it really does indicate how well you’re moving the clay. The most common issue you’ll find is weight in lower half of the walls, excess clay that you’ll either have to trim away, leading to a drastic change of shape, or simply live with a pot that’s bottom heavy, which is fundamentally a show of poor craftsmanship, (depending on the shape of course and if it’s a functional vessel or not). The cavity you see underneath is simply where the wire has pulled the base up as I yanked it upwards to reveal the cross section. These are thrown with about 200 grams of clay and I really try to get them as thin and tall as possible. My glazes go on quite thickly, so if the clay walls beneath are thick as well the piece ends up being much heavier than usual. The lip is thrown to a sharp rim, this fits nicely into the corners of your mouth in a way squared off rims or overly chunky ones don’t, it also conveys a sense of fineness. If the rim were to be razor sharp you’d imagine the whole vessel to be incredibly delicate and as light as a feather, whereas a thick squared rim does the opposite, before even picking it up you might imagine it to be heavy. Lips and edges communicate so much about the vessels they encircle.
There isn’t much to trim away on these but I do anyway, I place them upside-down over a chuck that fits snuggly into the interior space of the beaker. I’ll then skim over the outside just to make sure the walls are nice and straight while also removing a little bit of clay. The bottom corner is turned the most, there’s inevitably going to be more clay there than anywhere else, so I turn a bevelled edge around the diameter of the base. The wiring off marks are trimmed over and smoothed and finally my maker’s mark is pushed in.
Grey sands side dishes are looking for holiday tables to sit on! Grab yours in the shop before noon pst tomorrow and they’ll be on their way to you and into your hands early next week.
