Black Clay Beauty

Elsa Lye

Black clay fascinates me … a whole different feel to white.
These small pieces still to be fired.
My studio has shrunk to half a garage … makes me consider space.

Morning View

Elsa Lye

These 2 photos where taken recently 40min. apart. Some mornings the entrance to Raglan harbour is white out. I don’t have a studio so used this phenomenon. It may be rare veniclar cloud. Does anyone know?
This vessel was living flat on shells in an anagama kiln to 1300 degrees.

Soap Dish

Elsa Lye

20 years ago Gavin Hipkins was judged winner with a photograph of a soap dish for the first National Contemporary Art Award promoted by the Waikato Arts Society and the Waikato Museum. I have always wanted to celebrate the soap dish from that time as I was on the committee that organized this award. 

These sweet ducks have been waiting years to be appreciated. I felt now is the time. Spot the different duck and who can zip through. I’m needing to laugh out loud. LOL.

Enjoying the slower pace and making Maggie Beers quince and rosemary jelly, recommended with cheese, quail and venison. I wish. Health much improved.
