Truck and Silly Nonsense
I remember my Grade 9 French teacher Bertha Andrews would scream at me" It's just truck and silly nonsense and I won't have any of it. I wasn't very good at French and it was probably the lowest grade I ever received in school. I got a 52 which was a bare bones pass. I got this by doing a art project on Paris. Well, our last firing was a bit of an art project and we had fun with pouring, dabbling and doing all kinds of truck and silly nonsense. That beautiful crocus martis red colour is the granular rutile where the beige kaki colour is the ceramic grade rutile. What an amaziing difference! Doing these little wall bowls is like doing ceramic fusion tests and a lot of learning about colour and behaviour of materials is learned. Being a pure and true Capitalist our little testers are for sale. You thought I was just good looking!
