Work for an Anagama firing at Guldagergaard

I had been working towards a firing in the small anagram kiln at Guldagergaard. Pinching, throwing and decorating. I want to have new work ready for my Open Door Covid-style Exhibition and Sale on the 28th and 29th November.

I have bought a Pop-Up tent, so some of the display will be in the open air. My new gallery space is very small so only one or two guests can be inside at the same time, but it has a door to the outside which can stand open, giving a well-ventilated and cold viewing experience!

Vases for a wedding table

I made a group of vases for the Long table for the wedding of our granddaughter, Ragna to Troels, which took place in our garden and house on the 22nd August, 2020.

The vases were thrown on a kick wheel at Guldagergaard international Ceramic Center, during the summer open days in the Guldagergaard Park. They were all glazed in different celadon glazes and fired in the Bourry Box Train Kiln, “Skælskør Express” for 15 hours to 1350 degrees centigrade. ( Cone 13) Both porcelain and stoneware clays were used.

Decals from China

I was given a sheet of decals when I was in Lanzhou a year ago and have only now begun to use them: the first time I have ever used decals! The text translates as "The story of Ceramics", the line of camels seems to relate to Dunhuang and the Gobi desert, and the images are taken from from frescoes in the Mogao Caves near Dunhuang.
Some of the cups were wood-fired to 1300C before the decals were applied. The white cups were fired in an electric kiln to 1270C. Once the decals were applied and had dried, they were fired again to 800C.
As I only have one sheet of decals, this is a very limited production of "souvenirs" of the two
months I spent at the Lanzhou City University in 2018 and of our outing to Dunhuang, the desert and the magnificent Mogao Caves.
