Things they are a happening!

Barrington Court are moving on with the plans for the future
an Architect has been appointed and yesterday
I had a surveyor in the workshop with one of those fancy bits of equipment.
I've gained an order for a large bread crock with a wooden lid.

and I felt that the showroom needs some bigger pots to make more of an impact.
so I got on and made these.
These two bowls are ordered both 14" wide at the moment
hoping they will be 13" when finished.
I put handles on this morning.

and This is my measuring stick I use when at the wheel
to give you some idea of scale.
I've got a biscuit firing cooling down and will do glazing on Sunday.
so more new pots out of the kiln for Tuesday morning.

I will be closed at the workshop next weekend as I will be attending the
Yesterday's Farming event
Dillington House , Nr Ilminster.

I'll scan the leaflet later and put it on here.

Plans plans, what are they planning now? Interesting and a good teaser. Look forward to finding out what they are.

Busy times, eh? I'll be putting pots in the post next week.

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"...
