Paul Jessop - Tree Surgeon & Potter

After a night of Heavy snow, when I went out to walk to the workshop this morning
I found that this very big branch had split under the weight of the snow, and was hanging out into the lane. So I had to get the Ladder out and cut it off using my tree saw.
Once at work I made 36 coffee cups, slipped 10 jugs and 4 storage jars and loaded the kiln for a Bisc firing.
I finished off this Casserole, but after I had put one of the handles on I decided I liked it as it was. so I have left it like this, now I'm at home looking at it I'm not so sure.
I think it looks a bit like a chamber pot with a lid.

A good indication of how bad the weather is, is that it's Friday Night
and we have not gone to the Pub.

...Or what about a sugar pot???

You could totally leave it "open to interpretation".

Btw, I should have stayed home from the pub too. Oy...

Thanks for the Honesty there Hollis,
I've decorated it now and it looks a bit better. pics to come.
I had two more under plastic, I've finished those off without handles, but I have now seen a way of making them with handles from the rim, in a Cardew style, so I'll be trying those next week.

Not that there's anything wrong with a 21st century chamber pot.

Oh the snow storms I remember from the mountains years ago, trying to shake snow off trees to save them from bending permanently. I don't envy you.

After the party I was at at the weekend, the following morning as I came out of the bathroom a sahll we say lady of more advanced years than myself was waiting to empty her very own plastic chamber pot (for want of a better word). Apparently she always takes it with her when she stays at other people's houses. I can send her your number, your's would be much more attractive to meet in a morning at your in-laws house!
