Exploring new territory.

I got a lovely delivery of lots of white earthenware slip today at college! So I was finally able to put my triangle moulds to use and start working in the ceramics workshop. I'm working in the glaze lab measuring out stains and slip and trying to learn all these new things, but it seems to be going pretty well.
At this point I'm just testing the material, colour and techinque, but it's just exiting to finally be able to see the idea take shape.
I had to leave before the tiles were dry enough to take out so I'll have to wait till tomorrow to see the results.

Back in school

Lots of projects going on right now. Top photo is an alginate mould made from a cow stomach - the process of making it was so disgusting (mostly because the stomach was starting to smell quite badly) that I'm not sure I'll be up for actually doing anything with it. Had to sit through a 4 hour seminar on what drawing is right after - a subject that has already been discussed to death in our lectures for 2 years not a great day, but I might get over my self and do something with it.
The next photo is my triangle tile moulds waiting to dry.
Finished them on tuesday and have been waiting for a delivery of earthenware slip so I can start making crazy tiles! Hope it turns out well!
Along side this I've been doing lots of drawings because there has been so much waiting around for technicians and drying and deliveries and then of course there's the dissertation! Reading everything I can get my hands on relating to craft.
