New pots

Fresh from the kiln this morning is this Large lidded jar.
It's the first pot I have ever been asked to make
for storing Parrot seed in.
It's glazed on the inside but unglazed on the outside
It's just the white slip.

I have told them it will show all the marks on the outside,
but that's what the customer wanted.

This is a large bread crock that will have a wooden lid when Fired.

I spotted these cars at the court the other day.


Made at a time when cars were cars.
rather than the jelly moulds they make these days.

I had no idea parrots grew from seeds. When exactly is parrot planting season over there, anyway?

Hey Hollis, the lady came and collected the pot today.
apparently the food is a mixture of seed,dried fruit, peppers and nuts.
they eat healthier than I do that's for sure.

The parrot pot looks fine, hope future finger marks doesn't mean it will end up looking 'seedy'.

I first saw one of those classic jags when I was a little girl; driven by the 'rent man'. Mum said 'jags were often driven by crooks'. So I guess our rent man had a sense of style.

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"...
