I've made a lot of pots though- mostly jugs - that always seems to be the way. Now the kiln's packed, there are quite a few pots left over. They'll go into the next firing which will be precisely a month after this one, when I'll be sharing a kiln load with Alex. Here are some pictures, (in no particular order) of some of the pots in tomrrow's firing
Some puzzle jugs I made earlier in the week
I'm hoping to have at least two good ones for my exhibition with Geoff Fuller and for Earth and Fire
Oak and ash leaf resist jug, the leaves taken from trees outside the workshop.
3lb jugs and 6lb jars
My mate Frank who came at the weekend and helped me get the back on the woodshed roof - cheers Frank.
The workshop garden looking pretty. I'll do a bit outside tomorrow during the slow part of the firing - cut the lawn, plant some more stuff, generally tidy up. I like to tinker in the garden on firing days.
Well a bit of a disjointed blog post - I'll try and keep this a bit more up to date once things calm down a bit. Crazy, when there's loads going on, there's never enough time to write about it.
Keep your fingers crossed for me tomorrow - by Friday I'll be either elated or despondent.
Shower, then bed time, another long day tomorrow. Goodnight all
