Tuesday



Still finding inspiration in much of the plant life that's in the nearby meadow - these ended up in some of my applied deco today in their own little way.



This is the field where I walk Digger every day. You must be getting bored of pictures of winter grass, but I love it in that meadow. There aren't many places that are just left to go wild these days.




Been slipping today. These pancheons will be unglazed on the outside and then fired rim to rim at the top of the kiln so that the outsides get the full benefit of the marks left by the flame. I'll put little wads of clay around the rim to keep them apart, hopefully the marks left behind when these are removed will create an interesting decorative effect.



The sun shone and for the first time in ages(although it doesn't look like it on this photo), I was able to sit on the bench and do some drawing.



Snowdrops in the workshop garden.

That's all for now except to send....

BEST WISHES TO ALL MY FRIENDS ACROSS THE POND ON THIS HISTORIC DAY.

Let's hope for a better world.
