Pictures from a poorly potter

Hi folks I've been poorly :( I went to the doc's today and got some pills so hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow. It's only a sinus infection, but it's made me dizzy and feverish all week and above all achy and exhausted. Enough moaning about that anyway.
I managed to find the memory card for my stills camera, so I'm pleased to be able to post some stills again. I've missed having photographs on my blog.
These are 3lb jars. The grey will become green and the white, either yellow or honey.
This is the big jug I made a few days ago.
And here's Luke at his private view. Needless to say, I was very proud of him.

Well this is a good value blog tonight to make up for missing yesterday and this morning. Here's a film of what happened yesterday And here's one from today, when I took the Golden Jubilee jug to Jonny the photographer's place in Exeter. I'll be going back to collect it tomorrow, so no pot making, but I need a day or two to get fit again before a big push to make all the large pots next week, that I should have made this week. Sorry if this is a bit of a delirious ramble - it's because I feel a bit delirious :) Off to bed Goodnight all

Unfair! The suspence! ;)

Hope a good nights sleep puts you on the road to good health!

I think that Anna meant 'suspense' (not suspence!)
That drawing is fab!!! Pots aren't too bad either...

Remarkable that you can make such great pots while so poorly. Hope it gets better. And Luke's work looks wonderful.

Thank you folks for your kind words and support - I'm on the mend now thankfully. Luke's a talented boy, I'm really pleased he's following his dreams, it would be such a waste if he hadn't. an, looking forward to seeing you soon and making some pots together :)
