8lb jugs

I made 8lb jugs today, I haven't made them in ages so it took a little while to get my hand back in.



I have to go out in a few minutes because I foolishly said I'd take a part in the village pantomime and tonight is rehearsal night. Fun fun fun!

Hi Doug

Pantomine eh! Will you have to dress up as a dame? :)

Hey I watched your film you gave out to us in the meeting on Tuesday. Its so fantastic - such a lovely life you have. So interesting to see someone actually dig their own clay - does it not ever explode with bits of stones? Your work is beautiful and 'proper' ceramics - not fancy crap like mine!

Evening all
Hey Jacqui, I love your work, I think a lot of our work comes from the same place, a love and appreciation of rural Devon. good to meet you here in the blogosphere. Yes I do get grit blows sometimes which is suuuuuuch a bore, particularly when I use Exeter brick clay, but worthwhile taking the risk for the texture. Good to see you the other night. as regards the pantomime, I only have a small part, story of my life ;)

Howdy Ang Jacquie and I are part of a group show in Exeter in a few weeks time in the building we went to in Exeter when you were over here, the old castle. Check her work out it's fab and she has a great web site too.

Sounds like it's going a bit mad round your way at the moment Gary, good to hear from you.

Cheers Dan, that's kind, well as you know, they wouldn't have been made had it not have been for dear Eddie. All the best tomorrow, will be thinking of you.
