June Meeting

Looking forward to more tips on glazes from John Sadleir?  Have you a piece glazed in a way you would like to replicate?  Have a good glaze recipe to share?

Come along Wednesday night, 1st June 2011, 7:30pm upstairs at the Cronulla School of Arts, entry off Surf Lane Cronulla. 

Should be fun :^)

When fired, the vessels look like this
 We got to see some home made tools for beveling edges and scratching up:



and images of her other work including this bowl with a wonderful gold glaze inside,

and these Sushi plates
For more of Donna's work check out the following link to the Ramona Open Studios Tour which Donna takes part in each year:
