I have been on quite a ceramic jewellery drive this month, producing loads of new pieces for a forthcoming display in the Alfred East Art Gallery in Kettering in Northamptonshire. Do go for a look, on the slim off chance that that is your patch! Below I attempt a rather primitive photo story... following the jewels from pre-firing to coming out of the kiln and having their fittings glued on!
I've had great fun trying out new designs, especially with making hairslides and rings - helpfully demonstrating below how impractical it is to wear several at once.
... And a friendly bear in some jazzy knitwear to finish.
