Reduced Lustre

Oh how I love reduced lustre – Pieces made under the tutition of Bob Connery – Stokers Siding Gallery.  Bob left us on 13 December 2013  but he will always be in my thoughts.  Each time I mix a glaze, hold a piece of lustre, look at a tea bowl – I remember Bob and the lessons he taught me about glaze materials, form, function and how to see the things that really glisten in life.  RIP Bob Connery.

  1. Hi Debbie
    We did a workshop with Bob on the Sunshine Coast a couple of years ago. The pieces I made are still being admired. I considered trying to make the glazes, then looked at the prices of the raw ingredients and decided it was too expensive. I fantastic opportunity though. Good to be in touch with you through Facebook. Regards

  2. These are very sweet Debby, I look forward to learning about the reduced lustre as well. You seem to have a tertiary rainbow of collies with these pieces. Rather lustrery!

    Dear Debby, just love your reduced lustre results. We had Bob for a workshop at Gold Coast Potters too. While enjoying the whole process and results, like Ellen found the getting set up and started out of my reach, so I content myself by visiting Bob’s Gallery from time to time and shopping. Why “reinvent the wheel”? My aploogy for your opening in Drake on the 24th however we’ll be there a few days later to see what you have all been up to. Best Wishes Joan
