Plate making workshops – some final results

We have been making ceramic plates for several weeks now in Dudley Road Studios, and here are some of the results.

Jill made this plate for a friend who lives on a narrow boat in Oxford.

I like the ferns – they come from my garden and were pressed into the clay using a rolling pin. I also like the irregular shape of the plate.

The blue and yellow come from Botz under glazes. There’s a transparent glaze on top.

Pretty pink flowers…again, we used Botz under glazes with transparent glaze on top.

A bird in the hand…plaster sprig moulds of birds were used to create the birds on this plate, and cobalt and copper oxide daubed on to add colour. Again, we used a transparent glaze to seal in the colour.

I will upload my website with new workshops soon, so please go here to find out what’s in store.


About Anna

I am a ceramic sculptor living on the South coast near London, England. My work is influenced by my experience of the earth as a living being and seeing how we are all connected with eachother and with the things that surround us. I create ceramic torsos using molochite clay which I often smokefire in galvanised dustbins. I also make House Gods to protect and amuse, and Fat Birds - little smokefired sculptures that tell the story about what it is like to be a fat bird at peace with its surroundings.
