What's going on !
We had some new pots out of the kiln today
so the showroom has a few more pots today.
Wassail Cups and Lipped bowls are now back in stock.
Another Biscuit firing has gone in today, so we seem to be on a role.
One of the pots from the kiln today was this dish
made & decorated by Marion.
also out today this little press moulded mouse dish.
And then guess who walked in the door
we had never met before, only via the Blog,
but I felt as though I knew him well.
We gave him a nice Cup of Tea
and then we went to look at the Anthony Gormley exhibition
on at the moment in Barrington Court.
30,000 clay figures spread over three rooms.
Marion has been running small workshops for people to make
a clay figure for the field for Somerset.
also in the workshop we do try and give our visitors a bit of education
about local pottery history.
This was our kitchen on Tuesday morning
used as a dispatch dept.
So that's what's going on.
I'm back on the Blog again and Why? Because The Chinese have landed on the dark side of the moon? No, because I have time, time ...
OK here are all the elements needed to build the kiln. I had some 3mm ceramic paper left over from building my large gas kiln 2 years ago. ...
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"...
