Blogger Matt and Tig turned up at the workshop yesterday which was a lovely surprise.
Matt made a quick jug, then blasted it with the gas burner to get the handle on. I'll have to slip it for him on Monday. He's coming back to help with the firing in October, so it'll be good to have one of his pots in the kiln.
You can see some of Matt's pots which are for sale on Tig's site as well as lots of other goodies, buy now for Christmas! Check here.
His mum and dad and sis came by today too, it was lovely to see all those Grimmitts. I got out a few of my old Winchcombe pots the other day when Hannah was here and they were still in a box on our living room floor, so I was able to show the Grimmitts some of my collection of pots made by their ancestor, the amazing Elijah Comfort. I'll take some photos of them and post them in the next few days.
Last night went to a private view of paintings by a friend of mine, Greg Mason,(his daughter Jessica came to me for work experience a few weeks ago). What a talented painter, he has a blog right here
