Well, here goes…my first blog! I want to use this blog as a place to record my adventures in playing with mud (and any other creative stuff I like).
One of my earliest memories was playing with mud when I was 4 yrs old, making mud pies and eating them! The fascination with all things clay related has always been there, although I have had a number of distractions along the way.

My inspiration for this pot came from the book – The Traditional Ceramics of South East Asia by Mick Shippen – where it looks at the traditional labu in Malaysia, i.e. earthenware water bottles. Their pots were smaller and much more graceful then mine, but that’s ok, I just loved the shape. Its made by coils and joining to a cylinder, then shaping from inside and outside etc
