I threw some mugs this morning, I’ve been meaning to make some for years based on the Cistercian pots I remember seeing at college. I think I did try at college probably with dire results and then I vaguely visited them when I was at Doug’s last year so here is my newest attempt. They’re not as elegant as the ones that I have seen but then I’m not the most elegant potter I have ever seen and I have been told that potters make pots like themselves. I don’t know what that means for me though Amanda did say that one of the plates I had on display at her exhibition summed me up, it was a fat mad bird. I have to add that she said she did remove the “fat” adjective.
I think I might use the rules of quick decoration and no two the same again for these ones, that’ll get me thinking properly again. Speaking of Mr Fitch I had a good natter and a moan to him today, thanks, cheered me up no end, spouting a bit of random drivel does you the world of good. If you don’t know his work, go and have a look, he has been making some pots recently that are delicious they make me very jellyhouse.
