SMALL MAJOLICA BOWL TEST PIECE

SMALL MAJOLICA BOWL TEST PIECE

Yesterday – after several hours of packing up a large order, we were notified by the client that each piece has to have a sticker stating ‘MADE IN SOUTH AFRICA‘ on it…aah, bureaucracy! Not even a sticker on the individual box will suffice, so now it all has to be unpacked again..!

Then a hardening-on firing of overglazes on a kiln load of cups mysteriously turned out soft powdery surfaces which now need to be re-fired, and hopefully not re-done!
But one little gem to cheer this day – wonderful little test bowls of majolica glazes and painted images, very inspiring. I am excited today to be wheel-throwing work where I will be applying this technique.
The discipline of ceramics is always such a life teacher, seemingly a metaphor for the ups-and- downs generally in daily living. And what a pleasure to be a participant!
