So, back towards the end of last year some of my little porcelain bowls were taken to China.
In return, I was delighted to receive these beautiful bowls and 3 small packets of clay. one of porcelain, one of yellow and one of red clay. I have only opened the porcelain, which was a grey colour and hard to believe it would fire to white.
It was only 500g of clay and was very smooth to throw and did turn white on firing. The result was these small bowls – which are going back to China next week. Who knows…….. ??
It is always fun to be asked to do something different.

July 2nd, We took part in a Raku day for West Forest Potters.
Richard and I on Raku, Martin on Raku and Wendy and Debbie were smoke firing. In spite of some serious downpours, everyone had a good time and there were some interesting results.

Having so far relied on Flickr for sharing images of my pottery and ceramics, I am now expanding my web-presence to this – CarolCeramics.com – to include news and a program of events.
Expect to find mainly images of my work, both old and new, together with information about collaborations, commissions and more. The news section (that’s this bit) will be used to update anyone interested on what’s happening with exhibitions, demonstrations, galleries and any other news that I think may be of interest.
Enjoy visiting the site and please send me feedback either on the pieces shown in the galleries or anything else!
Oh, and come back again soon….
