It’s been a few weeks since I was last at the Brickworks. On my last visit, I left the largest completed vessel unwrapped to allow the bricks to dry and shrink.
Quite a dramatic effect I think you’ll agree?
I love the tones and colour displayed by the uneven drying – the darker bricks at the bottom are still quite damp whilst the ‘white’ ones at the top are nearly dry enough for firing.
