Ceramics and Architecture
The Scottish Potters Association organise a weekender at Kindroggan every year, this was the first time I’ve been and it was fantastic! Luckily the weather was ok for driving up, as it’s a two hour drive through Fife and Perth, very pretty in the snow.
I spent all day watching Susan O’Byrne demonstrating her technique. She has exhibited her am=nimals widely; they’re really really lovely. She was very generous, taking us through the entire technique she’s developed for using porcelain paperclay to form the figures, then using more paperclay to roll superthin sheets of patterned surface which she mosaics onto the figures, when they are leatherhard.
Here‘s a post elsewhere showing some of her wonderful animals in a gallery. They’re so full of character!
Some photos of Susan demonstrating;
ps lots happening on Mud Colony if you like pottery blogs!
