  • Todays mug has textured porcelain slip on earth colored clay. N top of that are green, red and transparent glazes. It makes me think of holly berries and leaves.

I'm working in EKWC this summer for a project. Your welcome this Sunday.. DIALOGUE *

From June 27 to September 18, ceci is a guest at sundaymorning@EKWC. 
We start with an empty studio space, a table and a cupboard. Ceci, (Sara ten Westenend, Miriam Rohde, Maaike Gottschal) will work alternately one after the other in this studio, reading and responding to each other's contributions. The purpose is not to create solo works but to conduct a dialogue. This way of working is inspired by the methods and excersices from scientist David Bohm (1917-1992). ceci will translate this exercise freely into working with clay.

  • Une théière trépied. Inspirée d'une ancienne poterie roumaine aperçue à Miercurea Ciuc. 
Cet objet ne se laisse pas facilement façonner. Le corps est d'abord tourné sur un rondo de bois fixé à la girelle du tour. Se détermine déjà la contenance et l'ouverture du goulot. J'imagine la main de celui ou celle qui en héritera, j'essaie d'anticiper ces futures habitudes. Puis j'en viens au manche. Quelle épaisseur pour que cette main se sente assez à l'aise de se verser un thé ? Le bec doit être fin et net pour retenir la dernière goutte. Après ces deux éléments tournés, j'en viens au couvercle. Une pièce à part. Un simple disque sur lequel je rajoute la lèvre qui doit s'ajuster au mieux. Un travail de patience. Le temps durcit l'argile. A bonne consistance, tout est prêt à faire corps. Assemblage. Puis, il faut attendre de nouveau le moment juste pour tournasser, nettoyer la base, poser le tampon. Les pieds se rajoutent, la anse aussi. L'objet prend forme mais tout n'est pas achevé. Après quelques jours de séchage, la première cuisson est déterminante. Peut-être qu'un pied n'y résiste pas, une fissure apparait dans un creux, et le travail est terni. Ou bien, elle ressort toute rose et décidée pour un trempage dans un bain d'émail. Après un bon dépoussiérage, la pièce cuite est recouverte d'un mélange de matières premières qui fixe une pellicule blanche à sa surface. L'épaisseur est la même, ni trop épaisse, ni trop fine. L'émail doit glisser dans chaque recoin. La dernière cuisson se prépare, le four s'empile des pièces blanches qui ne doivent pas se toucher. En dix heures, l'émail a le temps de fondre et de matûrer, de napper ses couleurs sur l'argile. Le refroidissement. Un jour et une nuit d'attente avant la découverte. Le four est encore chaud, j'aperçois l'objet parmi d'autres. Une surprise faite à moi-même. Un plaisir que je pourrai partager.

  • unloaded one last bisque load today and got a few pieces in the batch glazed. the red coat is called “Temoku” and the beige scribbles on top are the PVC Clear glaze. the Temoku is a midnight black glaze with hints of crimson when the light hits it just right. i haven’t used it before, so my fingers are mega crossed for a good outcome on these pieces. super excited for this set of work, the final product will be posted as soon as they’re out!
reminder that my etsy is currently stocked with goodies that are ready for new homes, dm me if there are any questions or concerns! thank’s y’all 💛

  • Two heaps of bowls.

Made with stoneware from a pound of clay, (453 grams to 18.5 cm x 7 cm), and trimmed once leather hard to almost half that. It means there’s lots of clay to recycle but I don’t mind. 
I don’t have any special system for reclaiming, some people add vinegar to their slops bucket or mix it until completely smooth. I just pile my turnings and slops from the wheel tray when throwing into a bucket, making sure they’re covered with a tiny bit of water. Once the bucket is full I pile it out onto plaster batts, smooth the top so no peaks dry faster than the rest, then I flip this slab of clay over when it has dried out further. Then I peel off this reclaim and mix it half and half roughly with a newly opened bag of clay.

For the most part I haven’t used pug-mills much in my pottery life so far. I used to be able to spiral wedge the clay we needed at Maze Hill Pottery faster than the pug-mill could pump it out, although it was tiring and my arms didn’t operate very well for the rest of the day, which doesn’t help for throwing. I might get one for my new studio but it’ll be a luxury for sure and definitely isn’t a priority on my list of things to buy.
