A slap of slip

Here are a couple of pots I decorated today. They always look a bit crazy until the glaze mellows them out a bit. The teapot will be amber and the jar, green. The manganese in the black slip will bleed in the glaze and so the lines will be much softer. It better had do!

The little lambs are in a field I pass on the way home. It's not a great photo, but I thought it was quite funny, they're like little teddy bears at the moment.
Yum yum.

MMMMMMM mint sauce!

I can't believe how different the workshop looks with a lick of paint. Will get a few plants from Tig to put in your little garden out the front next time I come down if you like?

It's looking great isn't it? They were brilliant. From pikey to Country Living in one coat of paint.

Plants would be great.
