This is a temple in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. During the workshop, while the kiln was cooling, we did a tour a several temple sites.
This is the kiln we fired at Golden Bridge Pottery. I was so worried that the thatch roof would catch fire when the flames were licking out of the kiln.
This is one of the students at the workshop I taught at Golden Bridge Pottery in Pondicherry. The kiln was at peak temperatures and coals were being shoveled on to the pieces in the front of the kiln. Very hot work in a very hot part of the world.
It's been over ten years since Tim has been making art without using a wheel. He says this is because a wheel will restrict the form. I got word from him that the snow had melted, so I went to visit his studio about a month ago.
While I decided on the pieces I would take home, we talked about ideas for his new works and a workshop he went to in India in February. This time in his warehouse, I found a flower vase he made on the wheel from 15 years ago. Incredibly simple and reminiscent, the charming flower vases are covered in natural glaze and are beautiful.
