I had a visit today from Nic and the students from his kiln building course, including Blogger Andrew.
They'd been to Svend's amazing workshop in the morning so I think my place must have been something of a contrast. My little shed was bursting at the seams.
I'll see them all again tomorrow at Nic's party where I'll be playing with The Love Daddies. We played our first gig there five years ago, so it's the Daddies' fifth anniversary gig as well as a shin-dig to celebrate Nic's fiftieth year. I think Bloggers Matt and Paul are coming along too with their good ladies.
Also my old college chum Simon Hancox who will be delivering his harvest jugs for next week's firing, it'll be cool to see him.
Luke, my fifteen year old, has a band with his mates called the Trilbies and they're our support act. It'll be their debut gig so they've been praticing hard. I think they're all a little nervous, but they'll be fine. I'm really, really proud of him of course
Still not a lot of pot action in the workshop. I got the mugs that I made earlier in the week handled and sprigged(they're upturned in the picture to aid drying). I can't wait to get back into production again, although it won't be for a few days yet.
Next week I'll be spending a lot of time in Bideford, packing and firing the bottle kiln full of harvest jugs.
Hannah's coming on Monday to be part of the event too.
Finally, here's a shot of my little garden. There's been so much rain that everything's grown like crazy.
Happy weekend all.
