After the kiln been out of action for a while and my home & meditation workshops keeping me very busy over the winter months I returned to clay to see what my hands would create leaving my mind outside the studio! New Shell like curled forms with holes in to weave wool and thread once glazed appeared this week.
Made from croxton clay for stoneware, maybe the thread will weave into each of these to create a set of symbiotic patterned relationships
I havent been blogging much this past month as been all house build consumed, trying to catch up & found that I haven’t posted these 7 new piece’s that are currently in the kiln being bisque fired, then glazed next week in a stoneware spectrum.
They are made using left over slip smudged clay which I used for the badger stone set, when I shaped the 7 piece’s I instinctively thought of our 7 physical chakra energies, ancient marks / patterns, the movement of the earth spiral and yin / yang male / female energies.
I plan to make a sculpture with these mixing ceramics, wood and metal ~ referencing the four (western) and five (eastern) elements ~ fire, metal, wood, earth, water..
These are also connected to be starting back after the summer at the Happiness Centre in Ilkley. Where I lead a free Sunday eve weekly Chakra Journey meditation at 6.30-7.30pm ~ all our very welcome for inner Peace & Love
