Back In the Saddle

Started the day off with a rainbow - always a welcome sight.
Today was my first full day of making in the new workshop,
I spent most of the morning Pugging and then Re Pugging my clay,
I made three 1lb cylinders and cut them in half, and decided to repug the clay.
Before I broke myself in gently with some small bowls.
The re Pugged clay was feeling good, so I made some 3.5lb jugs.

Doesn't seem like much, but I feel a lot better for getting back into it.
Thinking back on it now I also made some adjustments to my wheel
I raised the feet by 18mm and added a shelf on the back of it.

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"...
