Dragon jugs have been headed and handled today. I was chatting to Amanda the other day about how fun it is to make mad stuff but really what do we do with them afterwards. There are not that huge a number of people who will actually want them and would honestly want to buy them. You have to do it though sometimes. Let the madness out?
The pots feel really light in themselves, I may well have done my typical January thing of coming back to throwing and getting so much out of the clay that it’s then too thin to support itself through the slipping process. I seem to do that regularly at the start of the new years workings.
It’s been another snowy weekend here though today it has been torrential rain all day which landed on top of the compressed snow that was covering the roads – mmmmm lovely traveling conditions. No cycling to work today for me.
The kind people at H is For Home asked me to write a blog post for them, they posted it last friday, you can read it here. Thank you to Justin and Adelle.
You might have read about it on Christine’s site but there is an online gallery that has an entry from both of us in a competition that is is running. Vasefinder International 2011.
I was walking at Kirroughtree forest yesterday while Paul and his pals were cycling there. There may well have been an infiltration of tiny snowmen topping signposts around the place, some hat tiny leaf hats and some had what stones I could scavenge for eyes. I think there were a dozen but I did lose count after a while. Occasionally I think I was spotted, heaven knows what the other walkers thought.
