A still from the film that Craig Burgess has been making while I've been digging. 


Eltham clay plate

Just got this little plate out of a slightly too hot kiln. I think it got to about 1285, but it's still holding up - and the glaze fit is great. The underside is all burnished and mottled.. and the edges have that burnt umber colour. Still can't believe this came from a hole that Craig and I dug last year. I'm excited to be continuing along slowly with this project, with just as much time spent on considering the site of excavation and the changes I've made to it, as any physical making or firing.
