The High's and Low's of Life.





These flowers around my Kiln just look Great at the moment, what is especially nice, is that we didn't plant any of them, they just seemed to appear like magic. I loaded the Kiln for a biscuit firing and then turned & slipped these three bowls, that had been sitting wrapped in plastic for the last two days. The next bag of clay I opened was quite firm, so I decided to make some larger jugs with it, only 6lbs in weight, but they are 30cm tall. I made three and had the clay ready for another two. but I stopped for a nice cup of tea and a sandwich, and that was it. Marion said the colour just drained out of me. I had to go and lie down on the sofa, and I stayed there for the rest of the day. Although I had felt better when I woke up, the chest infection still had a strong hold on me. I was so looking forward to a full day making pots.

Getting the kiln loaded and a few pots made and slipped counts as plenty. Take care of yourself and give yourself time to heal otherwise you may end up worse off.

The lip on those jugs is very nice, I always feel mine are a bit scrawney but those are lovely.
Look after yourself.

As above: Lovely looking pots and you're back into the process, take it easy and don't beat yourself up, sleep is valuable and lying on the sofa is good thinking time. I think I'll have to get you down here for the next firing and we'll smoke the infection out - if not, maybe a bit of blood letting, I'm sure the old cures are the best. I'm still rubbing nettles on my warts but it seems to be making them worse. Get well and well done.
