I'm so glad…

that I didn’t feel like this at the weekend. I seem to have acquired a nasty sinus infection, feel utterly rubbish and I have so much work to do and I can’t get an appointment at the doctors because I didn’t ring at precisely 8.30 this morning. And Paul had to go away first thing this morning so I have no nurse maid to look after me. I had some very feverish dreams last night about being in a room that was crammed with slipware jugs of every conceivable shape and size, probably because I was looking at a Michael Cardew book before I went to bed, and stroking Doug’s sweet little jug. I had fallen for a rather large and really blooming lovely tall honey jug that Doug had on his stand at the weekend, I decided if I took a certain amount of money I was going to buy it. Two things got in the way of the plan though as I didn’t sell as much as I had hoped and a very nice couple who I believe read our blogs bought it instead. At least I know it is going to a good home.

I went out to the cinema last night, I wanted to stay home and just go to bed but thought at least watching a film wasn’t too taxing for my poor brain. They were showing two early 1970’s TV documentaries one about Barbara Hepworth and one of Bernard Leach. I wish I had been a little more able to concentrate but they were really interesting. He had a potters nod to rival Doug’s did Mr. Leach.

I’ve just had an email asking for me to have pots for a limited edition collection as part of a CraftScotland project ready for photography by the end of May! Oh dear, that isn’t going to happen, I had proposed making some larger bowls and platters for the collection so of course they will take longer to dry as well as to make. Shame really but very short notice for a potter.

I almost forgot with all the excitement of the wood kiln that I unpacked a glaze firing from my kiln and it was all good, every single piece of it, even top to bottom, blimey that’s a turn up for the books!

    Hannah, take care of that sinus infection. It was great to see pics of you all at ClayArt. Do you think you’ll go with the bottle kiln shape when you build your woodkiln? It looks really amazing, but is it hard to stack? I hope I can get over to see you all sometime in the near future.

    I don’t think it will be a bottle kiln even hough that one is so pretty. We could go fire that one all together if you come over here. We kept saying all weekend how good it would be to get you over here.

  4. Ron says:

    That would be awesome. Thanks for thinking of me. Maybe we can organize some sort of group firing sometime in the future.

  5. Sorry to hear that your not feeling well. Ugh!! But good news about the firing. It’s so good when all goes well.
