Stainless Flower

This is a flower I'm making out of stainless steel conveyor chains. Maybe it'll be ready for next year's Sculpture by the Sea!

You're Fired!

Pat was on the money last week when she rightly suggested a Raku firing. I've been learning a bit of pottery and this was the culmination of the first term. I'm not that in to the Raku look, but I guess it's a good idea to learn a bit of everything.

A hole was dug for the fire on the property of a friend of our teacher. It was really in the middle of nowhere, only accessible by 4 wheel drive . The owners live in a converted shed with solar power, gas fridge and tank water. A beautiful spot.

Theme Day: Books

Haven't  posted for a while, partly out of laziness, partly because the computer power supply went pop and had to go to computer hospital for a few days and partly 'cos we were in New Zealand for two and a bit weeks. So here's a Theme Day photo and an excuse in one hit.
Have a look here for some NZ holiday snaps.
