Well I absolutely had to start making today, there is only so long one can wander around tidying and neatening piles of things in a workshop that doesn’t have enough space to swing the proverbial cat in. Maybe I don’t want a bigger workshop after all, I would just prevaricate even more then. The clay was as I could have predicted, shall we say slightly on the chilly side but it’s character building isn’t it this extreme potting. More snow last night so the road was a little easier to walk on with the crispy layer on top of the thick ice and I’m getting used to having over a dozen items of clothing on, requires you to move in a slightly more ungainly manner even than usual but the end result is worth it.
The pot above I have seen in the V&A’s new gallery a couple of times and each time I have probably left smudgy nose marks on the glass trying to get as close as I could to it, that and it’s little partner next door to it, mmmmm, tasty as they come.
