Good morning, everyone. Yesterday was a pretty quiet day which was nice. I managed to catch up with the Great Pottery Throwdown (some amazing creativity) as I knitted and the ironing basket is now empty. I did put the washing out in hopes but the forecasted wind never materialised so it just hung there, limp and soggy, for four hours before I noticed it had started drizzling slightly so brought it in and dried it on the rack. Oh, well - I tried!
Pottery went loads better this week. The first candle stand had had its first firing and I set to making the second one which is a bit taller. Thankfully, the clay was not so wet and soft this week and therefore so much easier to handle and, to my delight, the art department now has a machine that rolls out slabs of clay. Brilliant!
Here's the fired one which now needs glazing . . .
And here's the one I made this week. It needs to dry out and be tidied up a bit before firing.
Today I have plenty to get done this morning before driving over to Dad's later on. So I'd better get going, I think. Have a great day. xx
