Welcome

Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past seventeen years I have made Norway my home. Moving to the Lofoten islands was the greatest present I ever made to myself and the Arctic landscapes are indeed a true treat for any artist’s eyes. I live with my British soulmate,… Continue Reading

Jewellery and Illuminated Sanctuary

I’ve been working on this for such a long time, I can’t believe I finally managed to place these two items on my Etsy shelves. There’s more to come but one day at a time! I have so many ideas, my creativity is all over the place and it’s hard to sleep at night, considering how slowly everything goes. Or maybe I’m going at a normal pace, and it’s just time which is permanently in a hurry. Yes, that sounds more fair.

Here is what I just put in my Etsy store:

I had a hell of a time taking pictures of them… because it’s the polar night.

And here’s the link to my Etsy store:

Happy New Year 2015

A happy new year to my readers!

Still warm (warmish) from the kiln, my latest creations with all the details about the Potter’s Choice glazes I used. I’m quite disappointed by some of them, they didn’t turn out even remotely close to the results which are shown on Amaco’s website. But apparently, I’m not the only one in that case. I guess there are some combinations I will avoid in the future. Still, I’m learning, Moon, witch and little goblin with crossed hands are part of a set, they’ll be illuminated by tealights (on the stands).

Soul Boat Lantern

Traduction Française ici
This is my last ceramic for some time now. It’s a Soul Boat, a vessel for the Soul across this vast Ocean that is Life. But it doesn’t stop here. The Soul Boat can also travel through the Otherworld.

I’ve also made a Green Man cookie mold. Unfortunately, it is a bit too thick but I think it would work great with marzipan:

Yule

Happy Yule, happy Solstice! And may all your sweetest dreams come true! And may your feet tread serenely on this path which is full of enchantments for those whose eyes remain wide open.

These are the results of my last firing. I’m always so grateful that nothing exploded or stuck to the shelves. This time I took note of everything I did so as to not lose track, I’ve spent most of the afternoon recording all of this straight onto the pictures. There are a few things I would have done differently now. Some glazes I won’t be using again or only in a very special way. I’m still learning a lot about the glazes I’m using and their limitations.

I’ll start with my most successful achievement, Alkonost. She’s a legendary bird of the Russian Myths. She’s an image of my Soul, but also one friend’s soul who will welcome her into her home.

This is Mister Fox. I’m aware there is an animation of the same title but I haven’t seen it.

And Dame Owl, whose name sounds a bit like Dame Holle, goddess of Winter (amongst other things).

And these are the tiles on which the lanterns will sit.

Firing at 1200 c. Ramp of 800 in 8 hours. From 800 to 1200: 3 hours. Hold 15 mn. Shouldn’t have hold it. It’s a bit too much for the Velvet underglazes which turned a bit too shiny for my taste.
