Jugs and oranges

I slipped the three legged beasts and I like them rather a lot! Two are no more because I seem to have suddenly learnt how to throw really finely and the flipping things collapsed on me, hmmm mustn’t try so hard next time.

I have been trying putting different things in the foot rings which is something I used to do at uni and while working with Jason and haven’t done for ages but keep feeling that I should.

Brushing slip on as I was the other day is all very well when it’s a form without any additions, ie no handles / spouts / random twiddly bits. So I have watered down some of my white slip, usually it’s the thickness that when you dip your finger in it only just breaks over your knuckles. This new thinner slip is like single cream and I could see it breaking over the edges of handles as I poured it.
I found the advert for the Shipley exhibition that I mentioned in the last post, just in case you were interested at all.
This amused me this afternoon, three people with oranges of some breed or other for lunch, they made a nice wee family I thought.

That’s all for today I think.

    The feet ad a nice lift without being too distracting. I like the ones on the lower pots the best.
