PJ Pottery goes on the road

The Clay Surface

I am very pleased to share with you that I am offering The Clay Surface workshop for Ceramic Arts Queensland  hosted by Redcliffe Potters on Sunday 10 April.  explores various decoration methods to apply to clay from the raw surface to onglaze methods.

Attendees will be invited to bring along greenware to experiment on with the underglaze colours, water etching, tissue transfers, sgraffito and carving. We will also play with surface treatments on leather hard clay like sprigging, stamping, inlay, applying slip and impressions with texture.

Bookings are now open on the Ceramic Arts Queensland website where you will find all the details.

pottery rocks!

Happy New Year! I am pleased to say that in 2022 pottery continues to go strong. My classes are full and back for term 1 and my students are as keen as to learn more about this wonderful craft. I am receiving commissions regularly, these are always a welcome challenge and I feel privileged to be able to create handmade pieces to order.

I love teaching and sharing my skills and so I am doing some short instructional videos that I will post here and on my social media pages. As a bit of a teaser, this is one surface treatment process using a thin masking tape to create lines in a glaze. This piece is not fired yet so you’ll have to wait with me to see the results!

hand building happiness

making hand built teapots for newbies was a challenge but they were certainly up to the task, some fantastic works emerged and we can’t wait to fire and glaze them.

if you are interested in doing a workshop at PJ Pottery Studio on Mt Tamborine, send me an email or subscribe to my blog for all news and updates.
