Make it, Paint it, Cook it
Here are 2 of 5 recent Termite Fortresses. Although Termite Fortress is the generic line name, this pair would be categorised as Termite Fortress Hive (left), and Termite Fortress Shuttle (right). In the larger scheme of things, when they link in with upcoming fiction, they are actual large population places, not ugly ornaments.
The colours are temporary crackerjack brown and buttercup majolica glazes. MAYCO discontinued their gold but fortunately a German company called BOTZ do a replacement and in the nearest suppliers, PotClays of Stoke, I personally hand-picked the next 3 glazes that will hopefully carry The Ceramic Devision forward. Thanks to Creative Possibilities. Cheers Julie!
There have been breakages and explosions lately, but also an insightful visit to a Potter's Barn and a new technique on how to pattern plates, so all is fair in love and war. The next news will likely be about the remaining 3 TFs, one or two plates in the pipeline, and maybe a different golden grape. Or perhaps not. It might be sod the blog and go back to school.
