Good morning, everyone. After saying no snow yesterday, of course we did have some after all. Quite heavy at one point and I bet the excitement was high in all the local classrooms but it died away without settling and the afternoon was beautifully sunny again.
I stayed in and did this and that. Beth came over and stayed for dinner before we set oput for pottery.
Two of the candle stands are now done and last night I glazed the third one. I really MUST order some ball candles.
Here's the two that are now done - just imagine a ball candle on top, if you please.
And this is what Beth was working on - now glazed and ready for firing again. It's a sign for the allotment as our old one fell apart. I think it will be lovely.
I've decided I want to play with some glazing so I made three oval pots using a mould and when they are fired I'm going to splatter glaze around and see what happens. I might spray with a toothbrush (do you remember doing that at school?), blend colours together and generally make a mess and then see how it all glazes. It should be fun.
Today is an adventure. Well, something new anyway and it should be jolly good fun. Lindsey has organised for a group of us to go to a spa resort near Colchester for a 'spa day'. Believe it or not, I've not done anything like this before so I'm very much looking forward to it. Being Lindsey, it's also a fund raiser for Kids Inspire.
Hope you have a super day too. xx
