I forgot to take my camera to the workshop, so no video blogging today. Hil brought it up for me when she came to collect me this evening, but I feel a bit of a burke talking to a camera as it is, so I wasn't about to start doing it with Hil looking on! Anyway I took a couple of pictures instead.
In fact, I took this one yesterday evening as the sun set - pretty.
Today I made a dozen of these small 3lb fat jugs. It feels like I'm clicking back into the rhythm of making again now, there are lots of pots starting to build up on the shelves and my anxiety is subsiding. I still only have about a quarter of a kiln full, but there's still time and a lot of big pots to make too. I'd planned on doing those today, but the clay was just too soft, so I've blended and kneaded a load up and left it unwrapped on the bench to toughen, ready for use on Wednesday.
These are some baluster jugs I've been working on - I'll be doing a post all about about them later in the week.
Tomorrow I'm off to lovely Exmoor to pick up some lovely kiln shelves that I've bought. After that, I'm going to call by and visit lovely Blogger Paul. Watch this space.
Cheers for now
