Sometimes things just don't go right and I think this picture says it all!
I had a migraine attack last night and all day today, so the day's work had to be done this evening. I really wasn't in the right frame of mind for decorating but everything was getting too dry so I just had to go for it.
I had Marky Mark for company - we try and work every Wednesday evening. Blogger Paul was asking how the new racking was going. There's some of it next to Mark in the picture. It came from Cardew's Wenford Bridge pottery so must have been used by some amazing potters.
Here's a pressed dish that Mark made, awaiting bisc firing. There's a lot of Picasso influence in his work. I'll post a picture when it's fired if he's happy with it.
The rest of these pictures are from yesterday. It was a beautiful day, sunshine and a warm breeze so I was able to dry pots outside for the first time in ages.
Here are some moneyboxes - a cockerel on a haystack....
This funny one takes its influence from old saltglaze moneyboxes that were made in the form of little houses.
And here are a pair of lovebirds, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwww
Baluster jugs always look a bit odd until the handles are applied, these make more sense to me now than they did when I made them.
Here's a picture for Tim. Three different mug shapes I've been making. I've got half a dozen of each, I want to make three other shapes so that I can make six of six - it just appeals to my compulsive obsessive behaviour of making things in sixes - it's a blokey thing I think.
Right, off for a bath and a good night's sleep ready for a full day tomorrow.
Happy Thursday everybody xx
