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.
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.
