Keep on "waffling" Doug, those were great!
Video is a very good way of showing the scale of the work and seeing all around it, something that "still" photos just don't do so well. Fun too to get a further look into your studio. Your Elizabethan Lady companion is stunning! I also like the smaller jug very much, the shape is very similar to one we have here that was made by William Fishley Holland. I might put a photo of the jug on my site sometime as I think you might enjoy seeing it. You will almost certainly know Fishley Holland's work, if I remember correctly it was he who gave a very young Mr Cardew some lessons on the wheel. We found the jug at an antique shop in Dunedin a few years ago when I was starting potting..., and we simply had to have it to help with my education!

hi doug, not sure why it makes you cringe. i found it incredibly entertaining and informative insofar as the workings of you mind while making pot. she a beauty of an elizabethan lady too. looking forward to more video commentary. btw, the video quality is excellent, good camera i guess.

LOVE IT!!...Loved the video (hehehe) and love the jug. What a clever boy you are Doug. You need to sort the squeaky floorboard out though! x

Great video Doug, nice to see you getting some practice in before March.

Anna said...

Finally had a quiet moment to listen to the videos. That is amazing and tedious work Doug! Cant wait to see the simple slipped jugs next. :)

"You need to sort the squeaky floorboard out though!" Oh, I thought it was your cat purring!

That's not a floorboard that's his wooden Leg!
