Two weekends ago I did a course with Bruce Walford building waka, platters and doing some casting with slip and stains, he was full of information and continuously sharing his knowledge. So worthwhile. Below some of the works I created on both days. The browny rusty boat was made by Bruce by bisquing the clay and then using rust paint and acid to make the boat get that rusty look.
I am an artist and live on the Kapiti Coast. Presently I am completing a Bachelor of Maori Visual Art (Raranga). I work mainly with textiles (includes Raranga which is weaving with flax), clay and paint in pastels and weatercolours.
