I didn’t get around to putting handles on the big jugs but I did throw a neck onto the 6lb body from yesterday. I think I like this one, this might be the one that my friend eventually gets assuming it manages to get successfully decorated and fired. Fingers crossed.
I slipped some of my normal big jugs, 4lb 80z in case you wondered. The jugs were a little wetter than normal and the black trailing slip, freshly sieved is actually a bit thinner than I would usually use it. It meant I had to be a lot faster with the decoration, no bad thing for me I don’t think.
I’ve so much admin type stuff to do tonight, trying to buy cheap train tickets (nigh on impossible I have discovered) for two different journeys (London and Exeter), writing up minutes from two meetings, a grant application, a couple of invoices to write, and I’m putting them all off by writing my blog and reading everyone elses blogs. I have decided I am going to courier my pots down to London for the Ceramics in the City show in September and I’m going to take the train. It’s a genius idea, the saving on stress on not having to drive to and in London will be brilliant.
