Cold again and crisp as a crisp thing.

A busy old day today, lots of pots to be packed and posted out, a new delivery being sent to The Royal Exchange Craft Shop in Manchester and a few individual orders that I got from having a pot pictured in the last issue of Country Living magazine.

I have been wanting to make a slab moulded pie dish for a while now and decided that today was the day. Then I got impatient when I realised that a) I needed to make a clay model first and b) I had no plaster. So I opted for the cut a hole in a strong cardboard box (this one I think was an apple box though I’m sure others would do the job equally well) and droop the slab over it version.

Squiggly thumbed edges.

Oh I now I was very impatient so I slipped it straight away, it has some boards underneath to support the bottom on. I could have done with putting a bit more black slip on it before I trailed the white on. If I had been in a more patient mood too I would have preferred to have slipped the slab and then put it over the hump mould that I haven’t yet made, but I wasn’t.

    Doug and I were just chatting the other day about how we wanted to make some slabbed dishes. Well thanks for figuring it all out for us!!! Who needs plaster when you have an apple box?
