Section of a painting called ‘Harley’ (Harlequin) I painted this some years back and adorns a wall on one of our studios at Earth Wool & Fire HQ. The painting is 1metre high by 2metres wide. Up until last year this painting was actually 3metres wide but I had to shorten it because I ran out of wall space for it (books in lower left corner for scale). It is a self portrait but in symbolic representation rather than a mirror copy of my face. 
It represents a period in my life and how I felt at the time. Deep stuff eh. :-)
Back to ceramics tomorrow.

'Cottage by the Sea' unfired yarn bowl. This is a remake of an early modelled design that has a few changes to its appearance. The sea waves appear rolling in from the left with the yarn feed curling around and under them. There is much more detail to the steps and fences and there is an old fisherman sat at the top of the steps in front of his door. It is grey at the moment as it is freshly made but will be coloured and glazed in a few weeks time.
It is for sale.
