and yet more plates!

Today I have finished lettering all my plates and even (after much procrastinating) started the cows. Planning to have them all lettered, turned and “cowed” by the end of the week.
Had an interesting comment on my blog today,anyone interested in the technical aspects might find it useful.
Here’s a picture of the sort of plate that I usually make and decorate so you have a clearer idea of my work. (Photography by Shannon Tofts.)

    Hi Hannah, I am Ron Philbeck a potter in the US. I am pals with Doug Fitch and Andrew (who wrote in asking about the turning). I just wanted to touch base and let you know I’ll put up a link on my blog to yours and make a mention of you in a post. I make salt/soda glazed pots, but just had a little go at some slipware type work recently. I am hoping to make it over to there to visit sometime. All the best, Ron

    Hi, fantastic to hear from you, I just had a look at your blog, it looks great, I like your earthenware testing. Guess what!? I just acquired some fire bricks with the intention of building a little soda kiln to have a play with. I have a soda / salt fascination, but have never tried it myself. I met a lovely potter in New Zealand a year ago called Chris Weaver who had this little easy to build salt kiln and gave me his plans. I’ve got some clay too, so watch this space. Not sure when I’ll get chance to try it but I’ve made a start at least. Best wishes,Hannah
