Close up images of sections of my favourite saggar fired pots

Before the tile painting began, I made pots, mostly domestic ware, as well as experimenting with techniques such as pit and saggar fired pots. Here are some close-up images from sections of my favourite pieces. A few were converted into large framed prints. I hope to make more prints from them soon.

Storm damage

The recent storm caused two huge trees to come down in our bush gully.
The good news is that recent rains have created plentiful food for the bush birds. Their numbers are increasing now. Still nowhere near as many as in years past, but hopefully the numbers will continue to pick up.

More tiles in situ
