I’ve been out of touch lately, all consumed for the last month with these commissioned candlesticks. After weeks of work and many hours spent in the studio, perfecting these pieces, through trials and tribulations I finally at the very last minute, (firing cooled at 11.30 the night before they were due at the very latest ) produced two pairs of candlesticks, unfortunately only one pair was perfect and good enough for the commission.
I was so elated and relieved for one pair to finally come out at the very last minute with a fabulous result!
Second photo ......Then this happened 10 minutes after the first photo was taken. I had them on the bench behind me and made a wrong move and before I knew it I heard the clinking and clattering of porcelain on the floor. I’m completely Gutted! ☹️😰 There were tears flowing! So now off on my holiday and I’ll make them when I arrive back home! What a journey! Unfortunately the second pair had too many issues so I could not take them with us. We live and learn!
