Queen Pineapple . Manchester City Art Gallery. Made in the 1990’s is was the second giant pot I ever made. A symbol of hospitality, prosperity and most importantly friendship this stands nearly 4 foot high and weighs 200 kilos plus. Originally it was made for the restaurant at the museum but has since been moved into the displays. Commissioned by The then curator Lesley Jackson for the Galleries I think the total budget was £5000 to include transport and installation. One of my favourite pieces I have ever made. Thanks Manchester for the confidence way back then. #manchestercityartgallery #pineapple #pottery #largepot #giantpot #ceramins #contemporaryceramics #symbolism

Ok. Stage six of the pumpkin making. Fill mould, close mould , wait a few days, take off top mould, clean and refine the surface, turn out to reveal bottom surface and side seam to clean. Approx 25 hours work so far and many more more to go … including the stem that takes almost as much time again. then the very slow dry as this is hollow but closed so slow to dry. Love having these about andcesoecially love asking Husband Graham tkhelpmout every now and again #pumpkin #videosofpots #workinginthestudio #claypumpkins #clay #amazinghusband #plastermoulds #ceramics

Hi ho ho the fun of closing the giant pumpkin mould with my husband …the two halves now joined together will sit for days in the mould to firm up and hopefully this wobbling on the plaster mould will help join the two halves well. Very difficukt handling this much clay but great help at hand. #pumpkin #ceramics #husbsndhelping #amazinghusband #clay #claypumpkins #workinginthestudio #videosofpots
