What do you feel about entering products you make in competitions? October 11, 2018 10:50 2 Comments

Do you enter competitions? I always have to have something that completely and utterly motivates me in order to start with new things this is the reason I am entering the competition. I certainly cannot enter a white Terracotta plate with a glazed addition for the nationals. What am I going to do? Gillian Clark has asked me repeatedly why I am not making the very large ceramic serving platters. The truth is that they are just too large for me to dip into the glaze.  Then it dawns on me that I have a wide variety of coloured mid-range brush on glazes that fire to 1200 Degrees. You have seen the first tests here. After giving it a great deal of thought I decide that one cannot submit a plain plate with no form of decoration just because the glaze looks pretty. I need to add depth to the platter.  This is how my journey begins.
