Back to work and opened a kiln this morning. Here is the result of our project with art-makers. This is a ceramic sundial in a shape of sunflower that we are going to give to a local children’s centre. We all are happy with the result. Hope they will like it, too!
This was the second group project that my workshop guys contributed. This time last year I was in charge of another big sculpture project - making a giant ceramic teapot! The local National Trust requested us to do in three months. Oh, it was such a fun (although I was under the pressure towards the deadline!) I share some images here.
