Just got in after an evening of noisy rocking with three quarters of the Love Daddies - the first time in months. It was good to be doing it again, although I've forgotten how to play a lot of the songs in a relatively short time - old age or just a full head I guess - or both probably.
I've been making these big jugs during the last couple of days. They vary in weight and size and in form and proportion. I feel a whole lot happier for getting those done - they'll fill up a fair bit of the kiln chamber, so now I'm well on the way. That takes the pressure off my brain - I'm starting to enjoy my potting again after a bit of a struggle in recent times. I must make something other than jugs next week though.
Jess came yesterday and made some sweet little bowls while Luke and I were over in the woods. I've given her my old kickwheel and her dad came and took it away in his quad bike trailer. It was nice to see it go off to it's new home. I've had that wheel for years - (Sid Tustin once sat on that wheel and kicked it!) - but now I have the big kickwheel from Wenford so I don't need it any more. I know Jess will put it to good use - her pots are coming along really nicely.
Well here's a video blog. It feels a bit odd doing it this way, but It's nice to talk to you all. I surely need to get that old grey beard off when the weather warms up!
Have a great weekend. Cheers
