Hello all and a happy Monday to you.
Devon continues to be bombarded with a deluge of rain this evening. My journey to work this morning took me through a couple of rather scary floods that made my poor little car splutter and steam. It's been relentless.

Here are three big jugs which I had photographed recently by my friend Jonny. They're in an exhibition at the Castlegate House Gallery in Cockermouth. Well two of them are, the yellow one sold last week. They're about 17" tall and they are the biggest ones that I've made in this style.
Today I've been on the wheel again. It took a little while to settle back in after having had company all last week, but it was good to find my focus again - I work best when I'm alone. These three are 5lb jugs. One is for an order, the other two are for my website when it's launched at 5pm on the 8th December. The Home page has a countdown clock on it. I'm excited to have a web site again at long last, it must be three years since I had a proper site up and running.
Here's a dish I made today - I'm working on dishes and bowls for the rest of the week(although I have paperwork to do tomorrow), which is something I've been promising myself that I'll do for ages. I keep getting distracted and end up making jugs.
A cockerel money box.

My video camera malfunctioned while Hannah was here, so this little film is short, but I think, sweet. I'll need to invest in a new camera in the next week or two if I'm going to carry on making these films, a shame, but I guess I've had my money's worth out of this one.

Time for bed
Goodnight all
