Square Dish Phoenix

At last here is some work to show you, all in the leather hard stage before firing. The square dish above is something new-ish (this is the phoenix on the set of tiles I did a few months ago). I am trying to produce some plates that are quicker and so therefore cheaper, this little one was three hours from beginning to almost end so for a first one that’s not bad and I think I can cut that time down.

Below is the Mrs. Formby’s commission from the Joze Show, a big copper ray, he is quite large and seen here under wraps while I work on him. So far just the top is done, he gets attention in the afternoons now when the afternoon play is on the radio and I can just sit and scratch away. The weather has retuned to normal here, blue skies, sun and warmth so I have to watch he doesn’t dry too quickly.
