Well today's been a home day, preparing for tomorrow, washing up and sleeping. I had to pop up to the workshop this evening to collect some more pots and to slip some big jars that I made earlier in the week.
The jars in the photo were decorated yesterday. The deco will mellow in the glaze firing so won't look quite so brash. They're made from 10lbs of clay and stand about 360mm with the lid on. Because of the coarse nature of my clay, it's difficult to throw pots that are thin, these feel pretty good, the clay was just the right consistency when I made them - it makes such a difference.
Ron and Matt have been working on some animal moneyboxes based on the old country pottery ones. Here's my version, inspired by a huge cock pheasant in the field outside my workshop the other day.
Off to Bovey Tracey to the Contemporary Craft Fair in the morning, back tomorrow night after the private view. Bye
