Some of the beautiful buildings (mainly wall details) from the Alsace region of France. This is generally where I get my ideas for colour combinations.
There were so many gorgeous little towns and picturesque villages. Sorting through the pictures may take some time! But hey! I’m unemployed so I guess I can make time!
Finished decorated flask forms for the #Oxmarket gallery.
The jury’s still out on those I feel!
Also I finally got found to finishing some grogged porcelain coasters that I was making for a friend. Here’s hoping they didn’t go out and buy some from tesco!!!!
Working on some colour tests and decorative versions of my flask form. A local exhibition of mainly paintings asked for my response to the work and so I used this as an excuse to decorate my porcelain slip cast flasks. Using stained porcelain slip in a kind of painterly way!! Not my usual style at all but it was nice to break a habit. The images were based on the beautiful buildings I saw during my road trip round France last month. I’m still not sure how I feel about the outcome but it was nice to try a different technique!
But where do these flasks sit? In the decorative? Functional? Sculptural? Painting? Or all of them and we just don’t care!
Helio, i like your tumblr [:

You were featured on Tumblr and that's the reason you have many new followers.

I found you earlier on the featured blogs page in my mobile app. I am inspired by your beautiful work!
Awkward that’s nice! I thought it was a virus hahaha! I will be posting new work soon!
Sorry I meant awwww not awkward!!!!
Hmmmm slightly confused at the sudden massive influx of new followers!! I’ve not posted anything in over a month so I just can’t figure out why so many new people are following me yesterday/today!? Bit worried it’s some kind of tumblr bug - or maybe I’m just lucky to have a nice new audience?!?! If anyone has experienced similar please let me know :)
P.s I will be updating the blog soon with recent work and research! ;)
