Отцветшие рододендроны, начатые и доведённые до половины на вершине Роза Пик пером и чернилами. И законченные на высоте 10 тысяч метров в самолете по дороге домой. Один из самых любимых разворотов в альбоме, напоминающий об эмоциях, найденных высоко в горах.

Two hand thrown ink dip pens, these ones are about eighteen centimetres long including the metal nibs that sit on their matching extruded little rests. Made atop the hump of clay, thrown as thin rods with a base that flares out as to support them while they turn leather hard—it’s delicate work and the concrete floor in my new studio will make it all the easier. In the past I’ve made these in workshops with old creaky floorboards and people simply tramping around is enough to send vibrations through the ware-boards to the carefully balanced pens, knocking them over, more often than not like dominos as one flattens another that flattens another.
Surrounding these are a myriad of other vessels, inkwells, bowls, pourers, tiny thrown palette dishes for mixing paints and inks and more. The smaller ones can be set into the wooden boards that have circular hollows carved in. The pots fit well, mostly, the rule is that they must be thrown with a five centimetre diameter and turned a tiny amount to allow for the glaze that sometimes pools around the bottom of the form. This isn't even enough sometimes though as the glaze can really flux on these are form a swollen band of glass around the bottoms of the walls, these don’t fit and will eventually need boards with larger holes made to accommodate them. Shrinkage is a pain with ceramics, once fired its fixed in place forever and the only thing you can do is throw another, hopefully more accurately this time. ...
