This week’s efforts. Next week will be my last throwing session for a while and I think I’m looking forward to the break. I’ve found this second term really frustrating, I’ve ended up missing a few sessions for one reason or another and it really seems like one step forward, two steps back, with more fails than finished pots! On the bright side, I have succeeded in my original aim of making larger pots (marginally!) from the same 1lb lump of clay, so not all bad I suppose! #clay#ceramics#throwing#handthrown#throwingclay#throwingfails#handmadevessel#gravyboat#sauceboat#handmadejug#jug#clayjug#leatherhard#shellshape#shell#organicform#handmadepots#claypots#clayclass#wheelthrowingclass#ceramicsclass#artuk#lewisham#lewishamarthouse#artlondon#londonceramics#femaleartist#adultlearning

First layer down on this new reduction print - the Japanese Masa paper has a lovely, almost reflective, sheen to it which seems to pop nicely against the pale yellow already. The studio shift around seems to be working well, just need to rig up a better drying line, plus my little helper has worked out he can be really really close, without missing out on squirrel watch 🐿 . #daffodils#workinprogress#botanicalart#floralart#artflowers#artinprogress#reductionprint#printrun#limitededitionprint#printinprogress#printmaker#printmaking#linoprint#linocut#inkedup#studiohelper#studiodog#germanshepherd#masapaper#japanesepaper#handpressed#baren#handprinted#etsymaker#etsyart#etsyartist#affordableart#artdecor

I’ve had a little shift around of my studio space so that I now have natural light flooding in onto my desk - what a difference it makes when you can see what you’re doing :) Now raring to go on this new reduction print! Aiming for 4 layers on this one and trying a new Japanese paper. #daffodils#narcissus#printmaking#printmaker#printmaking#linoprint#linocut#inkedup#inkingup#reductionprint#suicideprint#mothersdayprint#springprint#springflowers#springdaffs#vaseofflowers#potofflowers#femaleartist#artuk#etsyart#etsyprints#handprinted#handpressed#handmadeart#affordableart#naturallightstudio

‘Tom Collins‘ was one of my first 2 colour reduction prints - it makes me think of late afternoon drinks in the smoke, with a relaxed Art Deco vibe.

Whilst we’re in the midst of the ski season, I thought it was a perfect excuse to share some pics of these little models I made for our cake but forgot to share at the time! Plus, the ‘Yeah defo!’ pic that inspired them (just before he nearly killed me down a carved up red run - the course of true love never did run smooth 😆) [Models made from SuperSculpey polymer clay, then painted with acrylics] #weddingcake#weddingfigurines#weddingdecor#weddingcakefigures#cakefigures#caketopper#caketoppers#weddingcaketoppers#cakedecorating#weddingcakedecor#alternativeweddingdecor#skiwedding#skidecor#skilove#skidogs#skiing#clayfigure#polymerclay#supersculpey#modelmaking#etsyartist#etsyart#artuk#femaleartist#handmade

The Humpback Whale, 3 layer reduction print is now finished! This run ended up being a really lovely mixed bag, what with the rainbow roll and the differences in pressure from hand printing, it really has made every one quite different in terms of colour and tone. I’ll be listing this limited run individually on my Etsy shop in the next week or so - if you’d to reserve one for you in the meantime just DM me and let me know your preference! #whale#humpbackwhale#linoprint#linocut#reductionprint#suicideprint#get_imprinted#inkprint#printmaker#inkingup#inking#naturalhistorymuseumlondon#marineart#seaart#fishart#etsyart#etsyartist#mobydick#hermanmelville#affordableart#artforhome#artforwalls#artful#femaleartist#artuk

Big Fish, Little Fish... Reveal peel! First pull of this one after re-carving the box - will do some playing around with layout, paper and colour but pleased with this as a start :) #bigfishlittlefish#cardboardbox#dancemusic#ninetiesmusic#raveart#aquaticart#fishart#printmaker#printmaking#linoprint#linocut#artvid#inkedup#inkpress#artprocess#artprocessvideo#etsyart#etsyartist#ukart#femaleartist
