I clipped a photo of a tray and ewer like this years ago for my journal before I even knew who Judith Duff was. I love her work and I'm a huge fan. I went up to Surry County near the NC mountains yesterday for a two day workshop. Unfortunately I got the times mixed up, made it to the lecture last night and the class today but yesterday I missed the first part of the workshop.
Today, Judith showed us a video she made while in Japan and she talked a lot about shinos and her process, firing wood kilns and lots of stories from her time in Japan. She was mostly finishing up work from the demos yesterday, but I did pick up a lot of helpful hints from her and again I want a gas kiln to fire shino! My mantra is becoming, "one day".........
Here are some shots of things Judith brought and things she made. I'll try to post more this week, I'm just tired of waiting for blogger to upload my pics and want to go have a nice long bath. I camped in my van at Richard Montgomery's place last night and drove home in the rain today so I need a good warm soak.
This bowl has a great rope texture that was a demo from yesterday. The ewer also from yesterday so I haven't a clue how it was made, well I sort of do, but I would have to work it out. Cute though isn't it!
Judith hand trims her cups and throws very loosely. Don't you just love the crawl on that Chawan?! More pics later, promise :)
