Late one

Looooooooooooong day, I've not been in long.
Somebody gave me some little wooden taps a while ago, so I made some cider jars this evening.
Marky Mark came up as usual on a Wednesday evening

I'm enjoying playing around with these dishes. When I was a student, I used a sliptrailer on all my work, but I rarely do these days, so it's been interesting to re-explore the possibiltes.


I've made about twenty four of them - some will work a lot better than others think - they'll change beyond recognition in the firing, they're bit of an unnown quantity, which is quite exciting.




A bit blurred, but still I want to eat it.


Still loads to do, back on the wheel tomorrow for some biggish one-off pieces, right now, shower and bed. Goodnight all

A Doug Fitch Cider jar - Hmmmmmmmmm! I better start saving I think.
The platters look stunning too - really looking forward to seeing those post firing.

All the best

That is one great cider jar. I agree with Finnegan that the Cider Jar Master would like that. And that might be my favorite potter portrait ever. What a great shot.

Cheers all,I wish I could make them like Mr Finch and wish I could make cider too to fill them too! I managed to drop that slab of slip today - infact I messed pretty much everything up today :(
