Friday frustration

Well I made a big jug today, then spent the whole day decorating it. It was going well and I had an idea for the decoration that would have been quite effective I think. But then, right at the end of the day, I managed to knock the top off it, so it was returned to the reclaim, boo. At least I still have a video of it, part completed, as you can see below.

Hannah took some photographs today of the pots we fired last time I was here. These are a few of the little jugs that I made

Mugs, thrown by Hannah and handled and decorated by me.

And here's the film from today of my jug that copped it, grrrr

Happy weekend everybody

The Jug That Copped It -there's a novel there somewhere. Bet it was the best jug you've ever made. Hate when that happens. Keep the faith :-)

I've never mentioned how much I enjoy your films but especially your pottery. Everyday it gives me renewed focus when on the wheel. You are both very talented and I thank you for taking the time to share the daily potters joys and also frustrations. Maybe my words sound like many of your other admirers but after watching hundreds of videos about pottery, I admit this is my first comment, because I want you to continue posting these daily insights - I am waiting patiently for my kiln to finish with my first attempt at using slip and carving on a small jug. Thank you again!
