I’ve decided that I really need to focus on my wn practice and to help grow our classes at Cyan Clayworks so I have left my position at the school I was working in. We got in touch with a mutual a friend Susie O’Byrne in Glasgow that wanted rid of a jigger/jolley machine. It is a industrial manufacturing machine for ceramics that can replicate a lot of round pots very quickly. It was a behemoth… and luckily my friend Lindsey was there to help dismantle and load the thing into her van. I am hoping that this thing will increase our scope at the studio, both by doing commissioned work for other artists and to develop a commercial range of printed tableware of my own design. I have to restore it, replace the motor with a single phase one, and teach myself how to use it. Should be interesting and a challenge but I think this is the way forward.
Here are a couple of snaps of the move:
I hope to have it up and running in a little over a month but I’ll try to post more of the progress as it happens.
I'm going to open a very small online sale on the 1st of December as part of our Open Studios. It will feature 12 of my very best hand picked Wedge cups. Dismiss
