I seem to have been on a slip trailing mission today. I suddenly realised I had quite a stack of pots sitting quietly under plastic waiting to be decorated and I was running out of ware boards so thought I had better loosen up the trailing arm. This little jug with some not very usual for me markings on it was slipped in black and just had a very minimal decoration of white dots. What I didn’t manage though was to take any pictures. I was having fun with some more of the 4lb 8oz jugs that last week I had thought were so huge. One of which has an oak tree on it’s belly and is an order from a customer.
The big old 8lb jug that I tried yesterday went straight back onto the clay pile this morning, I wasn’t particularly happy with it, especially after I saw Michael’s picture of the one he had made. More practise for me.
It has been oh such a beautiful day, the sun has been shinning all day, it means I can keep the door open all day, and I even got to eat my lunch sat out on the bench enjoying the sun. Fabulous, I could so easily get used to that. The kiln has finished firing and has used a very reasonable amount of electric according to the controller so fingers crossed it will be A O K tomorrow when I open it up.
