The year started with me trying to make a conscious effort not to end up in a panic again over things and to make sure I concentrated on everything I did and not to flap so flipping much. Well I got almost 6 weeks in anyway. It was a good attempt.
I’m working up to firing my wood kiln again, heck it’s been ages since the first one. I spent the majority of last year having to make every pot count so kept putting off firing it again as I couldn’t afford to not get the pots out ok
Not sure I can exactly
afford it at the moment either but it’s as good a time as any I think. I’ve been trying to make sure I have tall pots, shallow pots, slipped all over pots, slipped in bits pots, pots to be glazed inside, pots to be glazed all sides, black slip pots, white slip pots, sgraffito
pots, trailed pots, bare naked clay pots.
I think I have a bit of everything – ish
. Still working on finishing and drying them for the time being though and getting the pots for Tokyo ready too.
I got a big order today, a jolly nice one, kind of important too, that was good. Still flapping a bit, off to Cubs now though so they’ll shift any thoughts of flapping out of my head for a couple of hours at least!
