I had a stall at a local country fair today. It was supposed to be an open air event, but the rain was torrential, so we all set up inside huge barns. It was a waste of time as regards selling, but it was good fun and great to see a lot of my friends that I hadn't seen for a while, so I didn't worry about sales and enjoyed catching up with fellow craftsfolk chums - potters, signwriters, blacksmiths, etc.
I shared a pitch with my good friend Paul Cook of Wood Art Words. Here are some of his wonderful carvings.
And here's the man himself.
This timber frame is part of the roof structure of the Love Daddies practice room, that is being made by green oak builder friends of mine, Tom and Ben. They took it along to demonstrate their trade.
Hil and Joe came up after school and got to hang out with Johnny Kingdom. Ah, the excitement of living in the West Country.
I've got to work sooooooooo hard for the next few days now, lots of pots needed for a firing a week on Monday, so late nights to come.
