A Journey back in time ................
« on: June 22, 2008, 09:48:09 AM »
 All of you who know Adam Aaronson will not be surprised that when given the challege to reproduce a Whitefriars Clody Lattice vase he was man enough to rise to this challenge. He is not there yet but certainley not far away as can be seen by his latest effort.( Shown below )
It must be remembered that part of this process was mechanized in the Whitefriars factory and as yet no photographs of the machine have been found.
The following 2 images are from Adam Aaronson and Graham Hudson and I hope to be able to make a short video soon of Adam in action showing how the effect is achieved.

Regards, Patrick.

Thanks, Anne. :) We are hoping to demonstrate this technique on Saturday.
