New ideas to try in the New Year

Over the holidays between bad films and biscuits I've been experimenting with home made decals (ceramic transfers). This is an old stoneware test tile, the added decals and gold lustre give it the look of the  Antikythera mechanism. One of the less credible, but more imaginative  theories about the mechanism's origin is that it was left behind by time travellers, Steampunk time travellers perhaps?   

This is a detail from a small slipware dish designed specifically for the decals. 

And finished at last here is the Space Scout Tea Pot. So I'm off for a cuppa with which to wish everyone a happy, peaceful and creative New Year.

Gill is busy, Stefan and Archy are in charge and have created a Seasonal Greetings Tableau.


Gill is busy at the moment, we're not sure what she's up to but it involves a lot of huffing and puffing. 

So Archy and I are in charge and we've had a good rummage round her work room and found some new bits and pieces that might give a clue as to what she's busy with. Or maybe not. 

Anyhows, we've made a seasonal tableau which we send to you all with our best wishes for a  happy holiday and we all hope to see you in the New Year.
