Happy Birthday Marion - Bottoms up

This post was going to something totally different, but Marion took a few pots from the biscuit firing and sat in the garden with a few pots of under glaze colours and some paint brushes.
To be honest we are both feeling a bit worse for ware today. Yesterday was Marion's Birthday and we had a few to many beers in the pub last night. so a not very productive day all round today.
I was reading Ron's blog about making some bowls that he didn't really want to do, but soon got into them once he found a good form. Well I have been trying to make some Pasta bowls for days now, and i just can't get the enthusiasm up for them, I made a selection to see if I can find a shape I like, I tried different bottoms on them and then slipped them.
Then Marion popped her head into the workshop and said what do you think to this.
She has never decorated a pot in her life before today, I think she has done a cracking job.

Birthday Rap for Marion

Happy, Happy, Hap, Hap, Happy
Ba Ba ba ba Birthday.
(more scratching)
(some beatboxing)
Marion is the new pot deco-rator
there's no way you could hate her
She's got style
she's got grace
she puts the right marks in their place
(scratch, scratch)

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"...
