In Search of the Black Box




When a plane goes down they always search for the black box. We had a firing on the weekend and the first thing we went searching for was a couple of Sheila's boxes that she had glazed in a black crackle glaze. These boxes are about form and there is no need for a maverick glaze. A simple black glaze seems to show off the form.
I have been teasing myself over another kind of box. We have been working too long and too hard in the studio. I had a dream that we needed a little tin box to get away in. Maybe do some fly fishing! Maybe have a campfire! Maybe drink a good bottle of wine! Maybe do all of it! Isn't this 1948 Airstream one of the sweetest little tin boxes you ever laid eyes on?
