Back in the workshop after a weekend in the sun and raring to go. Set to with a rack of mugs, it being almost Potfest and me having only a couple of mugs on the shelves at the moment. Then a rack of cereal bowls, always good to have and they’ll help me fill the kiln a little quicker.

Very quiet at work today but I did get a visit from friends Su (also a potter) and Suzie (a baker) who came to borrow my wee test kiln and gave me some of their fabulous bread and a great chocolate cake from their bakery in return. Happy Hannah!

Then in the afternoon I did some decorating, the inside of a big bowl which I think I might have made a mess of but I’ll see how I feel when I see it tomorrow. Then these three big jars, I only threw three, wish I’d done more really. No idea why I did three, I’d usually throw them in fours as I can fit four of the bats across one shelf. Must have been having an odd day. Never mind. Back to it tomorrow and as it’s been a sunny day today hopefully the mugs and bowls will be turn-able and handle-able. Fingers crossed.

    Hi Paul,I’m grand thanks, and yourself? Like the new glaze. Did you ask about the Potfest near you?

  2. Maybe the space you would have put the fourth jar in is for a new shape? One you subconsciously want to make? Free your thoughts in the morning and knock up a lump or two for playing with. You never know you might be on to something!

    Of course Doug would point out 3 is half of 6, and it’s natural to make things in sixes…
