Late night Wednesday

Worked really late tonight, so off for a bath then bed in a mo, but before I go, here are some pictures of stuff from the past couple of days.

I visited Blogger Paul yesterday. He's got an amazing new workshop, (nextdoor to his current one), that he's in the process of sorting out in readiness to move in, in a few weeks. It's going to be a really great space. Paul was on good form and had some lovely new work in his showroom. It was good to see him and to put the world straight.

Got all the 3lb jugs handled today. I meant to measure them for Anna, I'll do that tomorrow Anna.

Mark Mark came over for our regular late night Wednesday. Cookie joined us later. Mark and I did a load more shiftng and organizing. The workshop's really starting to get a lot more order in it now - I'll take you on a video tour when it's a bit more sorted. Mark and Cookie are both working on some tiles. I too have tiles to make - I'll get on to those soon, once I've got lots of pots made and drying. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase Michael Cardew's tile and brick moulds from Wenford Bridge.

I got the first of the six big harvest jugs made this evening - one down, five to go. These will help fill the kiln up. I bought a load of fantastic big kiln shelves yesterday that'll make firing larger pots, much easier.

Well that's all for now

Goodnight all
