So, I’ve taken up ceramics. It’s something I’ve always wanted to try – since high school, in fact – and was never able to make it past a wait list or find the time. And of course, just as I’m busier than I’ve ever been before, I’ve decided to immerse myself a series of courses at my local pottery studio. It is challenging on so many levels. It’s a true test of patience, calmness and tolerance . . . all things I very much crave in my life right now. Sitting at the wheel for 3 hours every week has been a most wonderful and much needed break from the technology that dominates my life. And after 8 weeks, I’m finally glazing my first piece. It’s a humbling process. Anyway, I’ve grown an immense respect for ceramic artists and dream that one day, I can come close to creating pieces as beautiful as those from Australian ceramicist Bridget Bodenham. I love her organic forms and th way she juxtaposes raw clay with accents of gold.

Lol all the mugs and pitchers look like they have ears that stick out…just like mine 😀
What beautiful and extraordinary pieces, I especially love those different spoons!
Everything returns to the origin, fashion, deco, lifestyle…
We love handmade style and this golden touch is perfect for Christmas!

I love your sentence: “I’ve grown an immense respect for ceramic artists”. It’s true, isn’t it? Once you realize ALL the time/effort/skill involved. I’ve just taken up knitting so I can relate. No longer do I glance with half interest at hand knitted work. Now, like you, it’s admiration, awe & yes, respect.
Great work of art love it!! a touch of Gold in everyday life will add some sparkle to life..
Looks like an amazing class to go to! I too have always loved ceramics (and glass, and…) and I did once try a class at a local college, but it was awful and all we made was a tile (and that didnt even make it to the kiln!) Good luck with it, I look forward to seeing more!
And – those spoons on that platter? Absolutely fantastic. I love them!
Wow thanks for introducing this Aussie gem to us!
