Experimenting with new glazes means examining the subtleties of the glazed surface. I undertake the fascinating task of observing the changes in behaviour of the glazes depending on the atmosphere in the kiln and other variables. I analyse the surface down to the millimetre. It's those tiny layers and specks that reveal the next amazing process to pursue.
I am constantly reminded to examine another surface regularly and thoroughly, checking for minute changes, observing the tiny specks and textures - my skin.
Recently several friends and family have dealt with the ordeal of Melanoma. As Australians this is a serious reality.
I invite you to participate in glaze examination with 'Millinoma'. Meticulously observe the details, look deeply and enjoy the process. I encourage you to return home, repeat the process with the surface of your own skin with the same focus and fascination.
Be aware of the vital signs.
