Well, I’ve an order for 60 jugs to make at the moment, the customer is great as they don’t want them all at once and in a rush which is wonderful. Especially as this was the first one that I decorated today. I’d just finished it when the phone rang and I jumped out of my skin, knocked the banding wheel and over it went.
I’ve sent off a group of pots today to The Ferrers Gallery in Leicester, they had my work last year and it sold well so hopefully this will go down well too.
Here’s the jugs as they should be. I’ve thrown one fifth of the order, mushed one sixtieth and decorated one tenth. They’re underway though and I’m happy (even if I’m not sleeping well at the mo – again!).
Friday morning I’ll be off to Kindrogan to the Scottish Potters Association’s annual weekend of workshops, this year we have Gwen Heeney, Matthew Blakely and Wendy Kershaw as our demonstrators. I’m looking forward to it though I have failed to sort out an “Olympic” themed fancy dress costume, any bright simple fast ideas welcome.
