Back in the groove
Luke decided he ought to make another model just in case the other doesn't come through the kiln successfully, so he's worked really hard on it this week.
He finished it tonight. His first one is in the kiln bisc firing. It'll be out in the morning, so fingers crossed.
I went up to Cookie's workshop this afternoon to help with the backdrop for Saturday's gig. His workshop is in an idyllic setting, an old barn in a semi-derelict Victorian farm yard. Joe, my younger son came too and played with two of Cookie's children. Here's Joe, wearing my work jacket.
And here's Cookie, executing some energetic brush strokes, he made a great job of it.
This evening Marky Mark came up to the workshop. I got started with making the next kiln load. In at the deep end with a big tapered jug. This one's about 20 inches high. I fancy making some ridiculously tall ones.
Lack of confidence and self doubt can be very destructive sometimes. This jug seemed to go pretty well though, so my head's in a much better place tonight than it was. Just as well, Alex and Steve are coming tomorrow to do some more work on the film. It's good to be making again, I really needed the break.
