The Pottery Show season is in full swing 2017
Apologies for the long gap between blog posts
the keyboard on my blog laptop decided it would give up,
my P's & T's had ground to a halt, which made for some
interesting reading if you didn't check it !
I thought I would start with a few work in progress pics.
I'm still not happy with my little Tea Pots
but they will happen!
Our Cottage is looking good this summer
We both loved this Harvest jug
It inspired us to try some small ones
These little chaps were thrown using 2lbs of clay
I really enjoyed throwing the full bellied shape
I then handed them over to Marion to work her magic
on the design
We were both pleased with the outcome
and are planning more.
Even if it does go against the grain, it's nice to work
on pots together.
Of course you always need a little down time
and since it's almost a year since we lost Cadbury
we never miss a chance to meet other peoples dogs.
Barrington Village held a very successful open Gardens event
and in the evening I got chatting to Mr Robin Wild,
( he's he second chap)
who it turned out went to Chelsea school of Art
with Seth Cardew and they were great friends.
We went into full Country mode for our stall at
Earth and Fire.
I even borrowed a piece of trellis from the garden centre
as I couldn't fit it in the car!
We took a weeks Holiday in the sun in Portugal
and then we were straight back in it.
The showroom has plenty of stock
and we are making pots for Art in Clay
it's at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire
and we would love to see You!
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"...
