A brief ramble before I head out of the door to work. Stayed late at the workshop last night, so didn't get the chance to blog. Marky Mark and Jessica came up to do some glazing.
New additions in my workshop, left to right, Blogger Paul, Hannah, Paul Young and two dinky little cups from Aussie Ang - thank you all. Ang sent me some little tiles too, but they were at home when I took this pic. I also have a lovely piece of glass, but I'll write about that another day in a separate post.
Some big baluster jugs from the last firing - I've got a good range of colour and tone to choose from for my June shows. It was quite a heavily reduced firing, so there are a lot of orange pots.
Some bowls I made yesterday, more of these to make today and some flatware. These ones are 3lb - I also made some 6lb ones. They have a notched band just below the rim.
I think Blogger Matt will be coming later and we're going to try and make a simple updraught wood kiln from a fibre-lined oil drum - not sure it'll work, but it's worth a try just for the fun of it. I'll report later - happy day all.
