Today I spent what felt like hours wrapping and packing pots to be sent away. One big parcel off to the Stirling Smith Art Gallery in Stirling and the other pile of boxes off to the National Museum in Edinburgh, both for their Christmas exhibitions. Hopefully they will be swapped in good time for a nice cheques.
I put a new blade in my stanley knife this afternoon while I was packing up the work, oh my how much easier and more pleasant that makes life. A small thing but oh it makes me happy.
Yesterday Silvana McLean came to decorate her pot for the Twelve Pots of Christmas exhibition. The pots are really coming together now, still quite a few more people to work with but it feels like it’s happening finally. I had to turn Andy’s dish this morning, a bit nerve wracking after all the time he had put in. I don’t go through the bottoms of pots very often these days but somehow the pressure was much stronger when it was just my work that I would be spoiling.
I was just about to put on my pumpkin outfit and take a picture for you for Halloween but have been informed that the outfit has been sent away to be stored until next year. So you’ll have to wait for that pleasure, the Cubs were most amused at out Halloween party on wednesday last, I dread to think what the really think about their leader, sometimes the looks they give me are priceless.
