tiles, tubs and automobiles




two streets away from tumbledown is the wonderful turnstile pottery co-op. it currently has around eight members, all serious ceramists, who take turns to run the lovely little store filled with their wares. they also hold classes for folk interested in honing their skills.

these are some of the clay tiles I cut out at this weeks drop in session. the face of the tiles are a tad bumpy. handling the clay is like making pastry and I'm not so good at that. they are now hiding under sheets of newspaper at the studio. once they have completely dried out (in around a month!) they will meet mister kiln.
here is cc in the bath tub on friday night. cooling down from an afternoon spent stomping around in a friend's wooden playhouse.
and this shimmering automobile is a black version of the taupe one cc's grandpa devon drives, so seeing it reminds me of countryside trips taken back home.
