Sixteen extraordinary men and women will travel by boat, train, 4X4, tall ship, bus and aeroplane across the seven continents, performing in a huge range of unique and atmospheric venues – from village squares to national theatres, from palaces to beaches.

Ceramics Solutions: the Automated Slip Stirrer
I don’t know why, but every time I make slip I get bubbles. Crazy amount of bubbles. At one stage, I’ll even get ceramic foam. (Yes, I’m firing it.)
I keep my mixing tool going as slow as I can manage. I try sifting in my clay slowly. I end up taking 3 hours to make slip that should only take 1 hour, and I still get Fracking Bubbles in the slip.
And the only solution to getting them out is to stir it slowly. For a long time.
I don’t have time for that! Thus my improvised Automated Slip Stirrer (tm). This ASS saves my ass.
P.S. For you potters and ceramics nuts out there, the gif has sped up the rotation considerably. The stirring is going at half that speed, much more gentile.

These works are so beautiful words can’t even.

“An ongoing relationship with the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia which houses an enormous collection of medical oddities has produced work that revels in the beauty of the grotesque.”
