Yesterday's news

Off to work in a mo, but here's yesterday's news.

Life's craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy at the moment, preparing for Friday's firing and desperately trying to pull together my paperwork to submit my tax return before Saturday's deadline - nasty!

Jessica is with me today and Alex will be arriving just after lunch, so we'll be in a frenzy of glazing.



Here's a little sgrafitto jug





The place where I went yesterday to get my hardwood. Got to fly, my lift's arrived.

Happy birthday yesterday little sis

Bye for now

Thanks chaps. Clay, it's a commission, a copy of a little 19th century jug made in Bideford, North Devon, that is in Manchester Museum. I might make some more of them because I was pleased with the way it worked - just got to wait and see what the kiln does to it now. I usually decorate when the slip is really wet, so it made a change to be able to handle the piece while I was decorating it as the slip was completely dry. When you going to get your wheel spinning?!

Hi,
I also love this jug. Would love to see the finished product if everything works out.
