8lb jugs



A quicky this because it's late and I need my bed. I got some 8lb jugs made today. These are my favourite pots to make and my head feels in a much happier place to see them on the shelves. I've been struggling a bit with a negative head since I got back from Bideford.

I feel like I've not achieved much in the last couple of weeks, but in truth I've made lots of pots. Because it's all flatware it doesn't look like much, but there are loads of pots in reality. However, jugs is good!



Here's a load of clay I've processed that's come from the woods and field beside the workshop. There's probably about 50 kilos. It was still a little bit too soft to use today, but hopefully I can make with it in the morning - how exciting.

Thank you so much Jon and Jo for the beautiful books.

Goodnight all

Those 8-lb jugs are beauties!

( Is it due in part to your morning tea or coffee? Sipped from a special mug I wonder? ;> )

These are certainly inspiring. I've got to make some this week and I don't look forward to it. This type of pot is still a struggle for me. Thanks for the nudge.

Looking good there with the jugs. You'll have to let us know how that local clay works out. Glad you're feeling better. Catch ya later.
