Ahead of the game

There we go, kiln all packed and ready to fire a day early. What a long day it's been, seventeen hours in fact, no wonder I'm tired.


Earlier in the week I had a call from World of Interiors Magazine asking me for some images of my work. They called me again today and asked me to send some pots to London to be photographed on Tuesday. Unfortunately I've sold all the bowls that were requested, so in order to get some more through in time, I've packed the kiln in readiness to fire tomorrow. That means new pots a day early, hope it's a good one. Chuffed about the mag, it's really posh.

Hey great news, do you want a lift to London with the pots, I'm going anyway so if you want a lift let me know.

Do tell us when the magazine is going to feature your work and we can all go out and buy a copy. Sounds like a brilliant way of getting exposure to your work.

Cheers all
They wouldn't want my face on the telly, although I think it's marginally less frightening than that creepy guy Mr Rogers on here http://youtube.com/watch?v=gi9afNi48v8

It's in the Sept issue, nothing fancy, just a couple of bowls and some of Paul Young's pots too. I think it's about reproduction tableware(not sure mine's really repro, traditional yes, but 'chuffed' nevertheless).

Thanks Paul, that would have been great, but I've a work experience girl starting on Monday for a week, plus I've got to make big pots for July's firing for Hatfield so I'll have to send the Fed Ex or something. Could have fancied a trip to London though. Your jugs will be out tomorrow pm, fingers crossed!
