Sunday was the opening of our Flashpoint exhibition. We took two days to plan and create a display along the side of the dragon kiln using bricks from the firing. The fired bricks had a dark burnt look. We used clay slip to paint some surfaces of the bricks to achieve a lighter background for our pieces. The variation in height, brick colour and textures gave a simple yet naturalistic backdrop for our clay pieces.
That day, the clay artists were on hand to share our wood-firing stories and explain the wood-fired effects to our invited guests and visitors who happened to drop by at Thow Kwang.
The exhibition is still on until 21 December. So visit the exhibition and you may find a little clay treasure to bring home for the holidays.
