Blog from Devon

Blimey it's proper hectic here at the moment.

We got back from Cornwall last night after doing a demo to the Cornwall Ceramics and Glass Group, thank you to them for that, we really enjoyed being there.

We're straight back in to it today. It feels like our feet haven't touched the ground since we got back here from Scotland last week.

The workshop's filling up with freshly made pots and the kilns are running flat out bisc firing. As well as trying to make stock for our forthcoming shows, we're trying to catch up with a backlog of orders that have been delayed because of the glaze issue and a poorly potter. The glaze is sorted and I'm very happy to report that the poorly potter is very much better now.
We'd been aiming to fire the wood kiln here this month, but we just don't have the time. We have to dash back to Scotland soon, as we have a wedding to plan and time is ticking down to the big day.

Instead of firing here, we'll take the pots back with us and fire in Scotland. Some of the pots we're making now will have to stay here until our next visit, as we're going to run out of bisc firing capacity.

The pictures show the 7lb tapered jugs I made tonight and some of the bisc that's starting to fill up the workshop. Also a moneybox, covered in rooks

Time for a scrub in the tub and bed

Goodnight all
