Work Experience placement.Day 1

My work experience lad Courtney Davey
Turned up today for his first day at Barrington Pottery.
after an initial introduction to the workshop
we were off down to Puckington to dig some clay.
The pile is slowly going down.

Then back to the workshop to break it down ,
wash it and sieve it.
Courtney dried it out on a plaster batt, and mixed it 50/50
with the standard clay.
and by the end of the day he had 10KG made up and ready to go.
More interesting work tomorrow with the Raku firing
in the evening.

Any student who will smile when you give him a job pounding earth with a hammer is going to go a long way.

Fantastic! Good on you Paul for getting someone in there for the work experience. That's great news. He looks like he's enjoying himself. Keep it up.h

I'm total jealous that you have an assistant. He will learn a lot of good stuff from you.

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"...
