Ok Doug this is my starter for 10

I found this picture of me at the age of 12 I think. I was hand building some pots. The chess pieces on the wheel head, were my dads idea, I made them and he sold them at work which helped to fund my habit. I think that was my mums overall from work I was wearing, I couldn't fit in that now!!
The second picture was taken in about 1979 so I would have been about 17. The room with the two windows in the background without the curtains was my workshop at the back of my Parents house in Stevenage. The dog was called Patch.

Pot-a-dapa-dopolous Jesspo. Love the old pictures - we all looked like girls in those days. I miss being a girl. How about some extra recent pictures, such as, Paul J gets his front tyres checked at Kwik fit, or Paul J staples some bits of paper together?

Pottery is the New Yoga?

Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
