Shino and some green cups!

Shino dominated the kiln load this time. Finally fired some of the big pots sitting around taking up much needed space in my limited work area. Just thought the green cups would add a complete contrast to the earthy bauxite, shino ware. Think my heart was in the glazing but it was with mixed feelings as another son flew the coop - he will be missed but is probably glad he doesn't have mum asking him to do those fix-it jobs.

National Portrait Gallery

Dr John Yu by the wonderful Ah Xian. The featured portrait story is worth checking on the National Portrait Gallery site - Dr John Yu.
I just loved the gentleness in Dr John Yu's voice and feel the mood has been captured in this beautiful ceramic portrait.
