Swanica explores Japan

Tuesday, April 11, 2006

Back again after a month.
After NCECA my youngest son, Arjan, was home for springbreak and we celebrated his birthday. I prepared the taxes and the 3D show for the Gallery House. The show will run from May 30 - June 24 (www.galleryhouse2.com).
I still have to update my website: www.swanceramics.com.

I used very coarse thermal shock resistant white clay for this work, because when the glaze firing cools down, I take it red hot out of the kiln and fume it with ferric chloride. This gives the iridescent shine.

Some pictures of my work:

Fumed "Hat Bowl", 8" x 8"

Fumed "Landscape
Impressions", 19" x 9"

Fumed "Waterfall Plate",
14" x 1"
Fumed "Long Neck Vase",
2" x 1"
Fumed "Pod Vase", 11" x 6"

See you at the next blog, about my return in Kamakura!
