Murrungbung Studio Ceramics

Post by anthonyW »

Tracey Francis sent me up this pot for my fig the other day, love her work.

Could be a handy fig in a few seasons , staring to tighten up nicely now, removed a thick branch left near top and with a handy shoot present will replace and rebuild there, tipped out all growth and removed back two leaves to direct energy to new shoot...... cheers.

Tracey is a star. I commissioned a pot of rather weird dimensions and wanted a drip glaze of autumn colour. Tracey made a beautiful pot for me off a very slim description. My group of variegated junipers does not do Tracey’s work justice but AnthonyW your work does. I think it’s great that people support all our local potters across the nation. Theres room for everyone. In this case, well played AnthonyW and Tracey!

Thanks Kirky, with some heavily ramified width the fig might catch up to the pot :) ...cheers
