Mad trees and even madder sheep.
Unpacked the first bisque firing of the year this morning and most of it is merrily making it’s way up to glaze temperature as we speak. It’ll be great to have some new pots and they are almost all completely new pots too though where on earth I am going to put them I do not know as the workshop is pretty full at the moment. I’ll have to make some space somewhere.
A while ago, before Christmas I lost one of my little plastic tools that I use to cut into the bottom edge of pots when I’m throwing. Today I was wedging up some reclaim and I found it. I had figured that’s where it would be. Glad it’s back.
I threw some new pots this afternoon, some vase shapes but I forgot to photograph them and anyway they don’t look like much at the moment, they hopefully will be better once they are decorated. Sgraffitoed this fat bellied jug too this afternoon, my trees seem to get progressively madder.
It’s not very clear in the photo as it was getting dark, but that made me jump even more when I pootled
around the corner with thoughts of a hot bath and a cup of tea to find myself slap bang in the middle of a flock of flustered fluffy flipping sheep. Now meeting the odd one or two is quite normal but tonight I have no idea how many there were, 30 maybe, loads anyway. They were not happy with me being there and some scooted over the dyke before I could get my camera out, knocking down a huge pile of the stones as they went. They were even less impressed as at that point a car arrived from each direction and chaos ensued. I tucked myself into the wall and tried not to get trampled and squashed.
