Philp Leach packing the kiln
Here's a picture of Philip Leach setting the kiln, about to put in a little penguin model made by my younger boy Joe.
The lady who's helping him is Margaret Squance, who is E.B.Fishley's great granddaughter. Margaret's commisioned the book The Fishleys of Freminton by John Edgeler, which will be launched at the weekend. The book's got one of my pots in it and an accompanying interview so I'm looking forward to seeing it - not least to find out whether I said anything too stupid.
We should finish the pack tomorrow(Wednesday) in readiness for firing on Thursday, then the kiln will be opened on Sunday in the company of Henry Sandon of Antiques Roadshow fame.
