Guest exhibitor

 

PRISCILLA MOURITZEN 

" The Rough with the Smooth"

 

24. January- 1. March 2014

The exhibition focuses on the contrast between the shiny white highly glazed porcelain Priscilla Mouritzen makes and fires in her workshop in Holte, and the crusty, flame-flashed work from an 85 hours firing of the new Anagama kiln at the International Ceramic Research Center Guldagergaard, Skælskør.

New photos and new poster

I have recently had some of my work photographed by Ole Akhøj - a wonderful Danish photographer whose work exudes calmness.
As soon as I have chosen a graphic designer I am going to have a new poster designed and printed, using this picture:



Each bowl in the group was also photographed separately. They are all 10cms wide and 9cms high, wood-fired porcelain.





I also had some larger vases photographed:

Christmas Studio Sale invitation
I am getting ready to send out my "Julestue" invitation for this year. I plan to have two evening openings and a Saturday afternoon. This is to counter the heavily-booked pre-Christmas weekend calendar that so many people seem to have in December, and to give them a chance to come by on a weekday evening.  Also, the house and studio look good in candlelight - as it gets dark by 4.30pm at this time of year, it is not difficult to strike the right Christmassy note. All we need now is snow.

The kiln was unpacked yesterday, Sunday, and today I have been able to look at the results. I had over 120 pieces in the firing. (Later: recount: over 140)
Three pinched bowls

Unpacking started....
