Meeester Fitch at work

Beautiful jugs even if he wasn’t happy with many of them. I’ve never really had the chance to watch Doug work before now. I do find watching people throwing a little odd though. It feels like I’m watching something I shouldn’t be, something very personal and intimate somehow. Don’t know if that makes sense.

It was great to watch how he does his thing though. Makes everything make oh so much more sense having seen all that.

How tasty is the look of that tool cutting through the slip? It just looks fabulous. I think I’ll be having a go of that, I’ve been thinking it might be nice to combine that sort of mark with some slip trailing. Watch this space though not too closely as it might take me a wee while to get around to doing that so what I mean is don’t hold your breath else we might have a pile of blue faced blog readers.

  1. That is some pretty great work. I wish I could be as confident and smooth in my mark making & decoration. What kind of tool is he using for that?

    It’s got a springy rubber tip, I think they use them for mark making with oil paint.

    Thanks for the vid!

  4. Thanks for the vid, Hannah. Nice to see Doug in action. And he seems such a civilized sort, hard to believe that pub wouldn’t let him and his mates in during the big snow.
