I am a novice at pottery, basically self taught. These are some of my first pieces made of earthenware. I dragged my feet on glazing and firing these. With no mentor but the internet the kiln kind of intimidated me. Learned a good deal from the experience- got to know my kiln, clay and glazes better. There are so many variables in pottery. Happy to feel like I understand the process more. Will get more polished with time. Mini stein to the right is glazed in that fashion on purpose and no, I will not elaborate at this time. Heh heh. 😁
O hibisco carrega a memória afetiva de uma época maravilhosa, em que eu podia correr descalça na grama e comer frutas direto do pé.
Hoje eu sei que o hibisco/vinagreira ficou em voga pelo chá, mas pra mim vai ser sempre aquela florzinha firme cor de vinho que explodia em uma sensação interessante e azedinha na boca. .
É essa relação de afeto que procuro trazer a cada vez que amasso o barro, e meus dedos vão dando forma às infinitas possibilidades.
We bought a chilli plant when we were on holiday in Devon at the start of the summer. It survived the car journey all the way back to Scotland with us, including a two night stint in a multi-storey car park whilst we had fun in Leeds. I’ve been watching these little beauties turn from green to red this week and now they are picked and ready to use. It’s a variety called ‘Cherry Bomb’ and packs around the same punch as jalapeños. Aren’t they pretty! If you’re ever in the South Hams area of Devon, I’d recommend a visit to @southdevonchillifarm but if you’re not, they post too.
