Just in case you are wondering… things don’t happen by accident here at Tea with Jud. There is a lot of experimenting, testing, making and re- making, disasters that end up in the bin, and plenty of new additions to the seconds pile!
My ideas usually start off from me thinking “What do I need?” or when I do need something I think, “Could I just make that myself?”. I do like decorative and sculptural pieces but as my business focuses on function, practical designs are a must!
I’ve been experimenting with many ideas since I started my business. Here are a few I’ve been working on this year. The finished piece is usually not how I imagined it to be, sometimes it is better, sometimes it is worse, so it takes patience and time to develop the shape, size and glaze but hopefully some of these will eventually make it to part of my ever expanding pottery range.
I usually have an experiment of some sort in the kiln so i’m looking forward to see what comes out tomorrow – I’ve been testing some PINK! I’m very excited about this.
