I’d left a glaze kiln cooling when I jetted off for Devon last week, here are a couple of the things that came out of it. The plates above are for the Carbon Busters schools project which is run by the Crichton Carbon Centre in Dumfries. This is the second year I have made their prizes, it makes me feel quite chuffed looking at them because they don’t need them until June and for once in my little life I am super organised. I will be very pleased come June no doubt that I’m not having to squeeze them in around whatever else will be happening at the time.
Some of the wee oval dishes I had made a couple of weeks ago. Maybe you would like some of these for the shop Christine. Speaking of which I will bring some over next week but I had banked from my mind when I spoke to Christine earlier today that I will be away in London until wednesday. How can I have forgotten that I come home from Perthshire on sunday evening and leave for London on monday morning? I am going to the launch of the Heritage Crafts Association, in my press capacity don’t you know (sounds good that doesn’t it). I’m going so that I can use it in my next article for the Craft&Design Magazine, and because it’s an interesting and exciting new project, and because it is at the V&A and I can get another scoot around there and because I get to see my potter friend Annabel and also my friend Elinor who works at the V&A now.
For those of you that haven’t managed to get a hold of the magazine, not sure if it’s available over the water for all you US bloggers, here is a copy of it. I hope Craft&Design magazine don’t mind, the issue has been out over a month now so it’s not brand new anymore.
The wee film is the master movers Mr D Fitch and Mr P Jessop trying to shift Paul’s wheel from the old workshop to the new. How could I not stand and laugh while all that was going on?
