Evening all. I'm just coming round after a really unpleasant migraine that has laid me out all day long - too much stress, not enough sleep, it all catches up in the end. I do feel refreshed however, I've been feeling exhausted recently, so maybe I can get back to work tomorrow with renewed vigor.

Here are some pictures and films from recent days.

Little Bernard has been keeping me company in the workshop, he's a sweet little cat.
At the weekend I went to London to help Hannah at the Ceramics in the City show in the Geffrye Museum

Her stand looked beautiful, she's making amazing pots at the moment, I'm immensely proud of her.

While we were in town, we took the opportunity to visit Barn the Spoon in his workshop in Hackney and came away with a couple of spoons. 
It was great to see a traditional craftsman operating from a shop in an urban High Street.

We also went to watch my old buddy Andrew 'Frank' Grundon perform. He had been on a marionette course at the The Little Angel Theatre in Islington. Apart from being an amazing traditional signwriter, illustrator and jug scratcher, he's also a puppet maker

Here's a head he carved in wood
And here are some of the stars of the show.

And here are some films from the past few days

Bed time, goodnight all
