After a bit of a hiccup in the proceedings…
… and a visit to the doctor this morning to get my finger dressed, I headed to a ceramics sculpture workshop with Suzy Jorgensen. There was no way I was going to give up without at least making some attempt to build something. Sitting and watching wasn’t going to be fun.
So armed with some glad wrap and masking tape, I covered my finger and had a go.
I am starting with a basket shape. This was my second attempt. The first one didn’t work at all, and luckily as I am using paper clay, I just started again. I am now an expert at weaving clay!
This is the first of probably five apples, so I will have a busy apple making day tomorrow.The apples are made using two pinch pots joined together and then slowly shaped. I seem to be drawn to apples at the moment.
