So for an #introduction I'm Heather aka Hacklock an Australian visual artist. I'm #queer, & a professional #catsitter who suffers from severe #depression, #anxiety and a very painful reproductive disorder, that makes life complicated!
Pretty unhappy with how this one turned out tbh. I think the clear glaze was too thick and it’s diffused the colour
This dice tower finally went in for its final glaze firing yesterday. Cross your fingers! My biggest fear is this clay shrinks more than I’m used to and the space for the dice to roll becomes too small
They are now drying slowly to try and avoid cracking, then when completely bone dry (and super delicate and brittle) I’ll need to transport them to where they get fired and cross my fingers
I’d really love some boosts on this. What do you like? I haven’t really found my community here and I’d love to make mastodon a proper home.
Aaand my piggy jar
Ashtrays that say durry bowl or dooby bowl
Testing a tower
Dice towers! The matching tray for the black and white one didn’t get fired in time

Close ups! This is one of the small planters
Update on this. Have had clay and slip on back order for like two months and finally got it. There’s a monopoly in the area on pottery supplies and the ppl that run it are awful. I hate being forced to shop somewhere so unwelcoming and hostile to learners. So I’m ordering from a small biz a couple of hours away but she has trouble getting stock because my local store tries to get manufacturers to block her. It’s fucked. ANYWAY I can start making at home properly for now
