Yeah Paul came back yesterday, we went out for a walk up in the Dalbeattie woods (I’m a red head the sun gets to me pretty easily.) Fabulous day, just beautiful, and again today, that is I do believe almost 3 weeks of sunshine we’ve had here in south west Scotland. This is our little house and the crazy built up urban chaos around us. We are one of a pair of semi detached cottages and you can see the roof of the farm just to the right of the cottage.
Dalbeattie is a really great woodland, we love it, much more varied than a lot of the plantations around here. I love this holly tree that seems to be growing on top of a rock.
Today I bypassed the kiln guys and the electricians and got Paul in to have a fiddle with the kiln for me. Fingers crossed – again.
I threw three big big bowls today, was rather hot for kneading up clay, 12lb I think I used in them. They look small considering there is that much clay in them but I think they’re not too bad. Threw some more oval dishes too. I had a bisque to unpack and glaze and repack, it may be out just in time for ClayArt. I also mixed up Paul Young’s glaze for the pots that will be going hopefully into the bottle kiln at ClayArt this weekend. I’m hoping to start packing for that tomorrow.
