The work behind the work


I don't often think to document my making process, but as I created my entry for the UQ National Self-Portrait Prize, I figured it might be interesting to track its evolution. I really love working through the process required to produce a slip-cast ceramic object. From hand-carving the models, slip-casting the elements to assemble, to fire, to sand, to glaze, to fire again...up until the nervous moment when I lift the lid on the kiln. This is the rhythm of my studio life.
