Summer Flock

Red-breasted Sapsucker

On the morning after we returned from an eventful holiday on Vancouver Island I happily unloaded the latest glaze firing. For once the kiln contained only my work!

Now most of these new jugbirds have been delivered to Granville Island, to Circle Craft Co-op where I had NONE left, and to the Gallery of BC Ceramics. I’ll post photos of them all here – partly for my own records but also so that others can make suggestions for other birds that I might design.

The wordpress system will muddle them up so I’ve captioned them all. And somewhere in the group you’ll see one square plate. I decided to use coloured slips that almost match the new colours we had painted on our house in June, and then did a little sgraffito to reveal the terra cotta colour underneath. The underside is rich terra sigillata rather than glaze.
