Not about the Royal Wedding

It's exactly a week since the last of the
Royal Wedding coffee cups came out of the kiln,
Today I have opened a kiln that wasn't full of coffee cups.

This is what I'm calling my Horizon Bowl
it's taken from an Idea I was working on way back when I was at
college doing my Pottery A Level in 1979.
"Yes I'm that old."
I've also got into writing stuff on bowls.
Some things I just make up and others are things that follow you through life.
I like this one because it seems to fit well with being a potter.
It's been great to get back into making bigger pots.
These lipped bowls are for showroom stock.
and I've been asked to make a Country Jug for a wedding gift
with wording on.
This one is hitting the spot for me.
I can't seem to get away from weddings at the moment.
I'm not complaining ,
I Love Weddings.

Oh, I love the writing on the bowls and that tall-pitcher/jug is really sweet!
Don't complain- wedding gift can turn into more later down the road.

Looking great Paul. I know you're glad to be finished with the mug order and on to other things. Weddings are a good market for sure.

Lovely. And that chocolaty brown color....yummy.

Time to start planning for the show season.

Show Time is fast approaching it's that time of year when you have to think about how you want to present yourself to the world! ...
