I’ve been busy making new pins and buttons for something exciting! 🍄They will be stocked in the exhibition shop at the @somersethouse “Mushrooms: The Art, Design and Future of Funghi”. Along with some of my other mushroomy Hoops and Bell Jars🍄
The exhibition is open from 31st Jan 2020 so you can go and learn new things about mushrooms and then buy some at the end!! 😊

Cylindrical vases, made in a variety of stoneware and coated in celadons and crackle glazes of numerous type and iron content to determine hue. Lots of these smaller vessels end up being simple glaze tests, I have a long row of them above a doorway in my studio as they tend not to be stamped but rather inscribed with a reference number that corresponds to a certain recipe in one of my glaze books.
Mixing glazes from raw materials was daunting at first but you soon start understanding what’s going on—although paying attention is crucial. There’s nothing worse than getting a phone call halfway through weighing out materials and not remembering whether you put in the china clay or not. Sometimes you can tell by the colours of the powders that fill the buckets but other times you’re doomed. It’s why I have tons of notebooks simply stuffed full of my glazes recipes in lists with ticks next to the ingredients showing that I have indeed measured each out. I’m pretty sure every potter will mix up a big batch incorrectly at some point, I’ve done it. It can be an expensive mistake too depending on what you use.
Lots of you always ask whether I buy my glazes or mix them myself and the answer is they’re all mixed from raw materials. I don’t know any potter in the UK who works at professional level who buys premixed glazes, the cost simply isn’t worth it for the amount of glaze you get. Plus, brush on glazes will generally never give you as nice a surface as a dipped glaze, which requires a large bucket full of glaze, rather than just a small pots worth.
