Done

Here's Tom 'helping' a pitcher to dry. He made it yesterday from clay from the woods opposite, I think it's a beauty.






































Firing went well, many thanks for your help Tom and Mark.

Here's the obligatory 'chuck in some wood and pull the brick out' picture.

I enjoy firing days because it's all outside stuff and it gives me a chance to cut the lawn and tend my little flowerbeds, which are looking really pretty at the moment.

I need to shower and sleep now, it's been a long, hot day, I'm pooped, Goodnight.

Hey you said 'pitcher' what's up with that, you must be tired.
It's a good looking one at that.
That's an exciting picture of Tom there with flame, he looks thrilled.

Here's hoping for a good firing. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Yes, Ron's right - what's with these Americanisums? Just you call a jug a jug. Well done with the drying out though, you have a very forgiving clay there.

A jug becomes a pitcher... must be the end of times. Playing with fire... I have a feeling you run with scissors also!

I'm wondering whether Americanisums is an American spelling for Americanisms?

Sorry... I'll get my coat...
