Gary Rith Pottery

I got to open my Gary Rith Pottery! Check it out...
So beautiful. The first thing I noticed was the weight. As I picked up the packages I thought "This can't be pottery." I am so used to handling my own amateur pieces which still have quite thick sides because I am too scared to go any thinner. I love the little flecks/grains in the clay. I've seen Jayne get this effect and I've always admired it. Can't wait to get some flowers into the vase. What to put in the bowl? Hmm.
Here is a shot of the pottery in place in front of my white timber shutters. Amazing the difference in the photo with different lighting.
Oh and I got a bonus Godzilla fridge magnet! :) (Have neglected to take a photograph.)

Bigger bowl and the latest pendants

Away from the studio lately but have managed to get a larger (for me) bowl out of the kiln and a couple of new pendants. The bowl opens out to 15cm or 6inches to give you an idea of the size. It's not enormous, but it is a step up from my little bowls. I am finding that I am not needing to cut the tops off these days to level out my bowls. This in itself is an achievement!
Not sure about the tree pendant. I think the colour on the leaves needs to be darker to stand out more.

In other news, I get to open my Gary Rith pottery soon! Yay!!!
And here's a photo of one of my crimson rosellas...
