The Day after the Night Before

We went to the private view of Doug's first One man show last night at the Long Room Gallery in Winchcombe. which was Excellent, we really enjoyed ourselves and got to meet blogger Matt & Andrew.
No pictures but plenty were taken by others, so I'm sure you will get to see some soon.
I opened my Bisc firing this morning, and got quite excited about it. just because for the first time I have a range of colours and designs, that I will glaze on Sunday.

Hi paul,

Was great to meet you and Marion on Friday, it was a good night wasn't it. Really nice to see Dougs lovely pots in a different surroundings too, they looked ace in Johns Gallery.
You use a clear bisilicate glaze don't you? What goes into it I want to want to give it a go if you don't mind me asking? Can't wait to see your pots finished I hope the firing went well or is still going well whatever the case may be when you read this ramble, there's some beauties in there.

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"...
