The perspective of an artist toward their own work is two-fold,
“When I finish a piece, for the first minute, I’m so proud, and after that, it’s ‘Hmmm, it’s not that good.’
It’s so sad because that moment of glory is just for a minute.”
But it’s that perfectionism that makes an artist’s work improve.
Handmade One of a Kind Garden feature.
Stoneware for example is a very high fired clay that fires up to 1300c. Consequently, because it has fired to such an extreme temperature, it can withstand extremes in weather.
Transporting the dried out clay figure from my studio across my garden arriving at my kiln living inside our garage, rather a perilous journey!
Unfired a piece of this size just below (40.5 cm)16 inches is quite heavy, I in fact barely five feet.
On arrival: I thus make a decision; how the best way would be to safely present it to the lowest point right at the very base of the kiln?
Moreover, presenting a hair raising problem?
My kiln extremely tall, (I extended it with a new section), therefore I have thus to reach shelf holding this large item without breaking anything, for example, a finger etc.!
How to do that you may ask?
