Short Courses and Other Stories.

Both my foundation and intermediate Ceramics classes at Grays have been going well. The foundation class have been working with soft slabs this week and have produced a lovely range of work. The intermediate class are working on a surface decoration project which includes the use of coloured slips and considering alternative surfaces. This has happily coincided with head tutor, Simon Ward's most recent charity project where he hopes to make around 100 cylindrical vases which will be decorated by Grays Staff and students, exhibited and then sold with proceeds going to the RNLI. I thinks most of the ones decorated tonight are already sold!

These pieces will be bisque fired and the clear glazed so therefore the colours will be much brighter. the dull grey clay will change to a cream colour so some imagination is required when making these pieces.
