China Blue on the way home to see if the results of our recent pottery painting had materialised and it had. I was also perked up by the lovely ladies that work there. When I arrived home this wonderful little fellow was waiting for me too
Behold, the rabbi, my first piece of pottery by Bernard Moss! I didn't think I'd own any of his work so quickly because it seems a little hard to come by. However, this friendly chap in the potter's characteristic blue, black and white colour scheme came up on Ebay last week. Foolishly, I placed a ridiculously high bid and was very pleased when I won the auction for what seemed like a bargain. Phew!
my previous post I used Bernard Moss's work as inspiration to produce my own homage.. As befitting to someone working in Cornwall, quite a few of pieces of his work that I've seen have a nautical flavour so I thought I'd borrow that idea. At the request of Mr Lovelygrey I painted a teapot that was large enough to fill two of the massive mugs that are used to administer the requisite amount of caffeine at given times of the day. I found it interesting to use a palette that was much more restricted than usual but didn't think that the primitive nature of the design was out of keeping with things I'd produced before. Give me a stick man over realism any day!
I'll save Louis' masterpiece that he produced to show off another time soon!
