My workbench and every surface l can find is awash with all manner of little compositions. I’m now in the final throes of making decisions about what to include in the forthcoming pop up at @mooregallery in Bruton which opens a week today. The show ‘Vessel’ will be held in a newly completed space at @carosomerset and will include pieces by ceramicists @floriangadsby and @elainebolt with fine, oak baskets by Lorna Singleton @lornaweavesoak and wood spoons, bowls and vessels by me. Detailed finishing is so problematic at the moment, the days are short and if the sky is dull, rainy and generally overcast, good light has all but gone by 4pm. I much prefer working outside in natural light, especially when cutting a faceted utensil. Soft even light is preferable to being inside under a glaring directional source. Arriving at a satisfactory complete three dimensional form is so much easier carving outside on my bench. #greenwood#handcarved#handmade#handcrafted#carvedspoon#carvedbowl#carvedvessel#spoon#bowl#vessel#makingdecisions#popup m#bruton#madeoftree#madeinsomerset#designermaker#craft#vscocam#livefolk#kinfolk
Raku bowls. Same turquoise glaze with more reduction on left bowl resulting in some red copper tones. The main difference in the firing was the faster speed that I transferred the left bowl from the Raku kiln to the bin with sawdust & covered with the inverted metal container. It is interesting to reflect on the firing conditions etc to understand how some of the variables affect the final result. However it will always be unpredictable to some extent & that it is a major part of the magic of Raku. #raku#rakufiring#rakuceramics#rakupottery#pottery#ceramics#ceramic#stoneware#bowl#wheelthrown#handmadepottery
WHOLE FOOD VS OIL 🔍
Ich persönlich verwende selten Öl und greife lieber auf das Naturprodukt zurück 💯 .
▫️Sättigender weil mehr Volumen und mehr Kauen
▫️Man kann die Portionen besser einschätzen
▫️All die wertvollen Inhaltstoffe wie Mineralien und Ballaststoffe bleiben erhalten.
Wie ist eure Meinung dazu? 🙌
Personally I prefer to use the whole nut instead of a refined oil 💯 .
▫️It's more satiating because of the higher volume and chewing factor
▫️You have better portion control
▫️All the precious nutrients like minerals and fibre are remained
What's your opinion on that? 🙌
