So they were paying attention after all.

I received this card today from Castledykes Primary School where some of the children were from who visited the workshop at Spring Fling. It’s really lovely, they have got my Woodley’s kick wheel in there, my whirler, my buckets of slip, the shelves full of pots and look even the slip trailers, both my inner tube ones and the commercial one. Not sure what the big purple pot on top of the shelf is but I’m chuffed to bits with it. It’s going to be pinned up on the wall.

I finally got around to slipping this jug today, my apologies to the customers, it’s taken me longer than I had intended. I just don’t seem to have had enough time recently to sit don and concentrate on it. The circle on the front was really hard to draw and it took me a bit of time to work up to getting the trailer near it.

I’m pleased with it though. Looking forward to seeing it fired. The rain has been torrential all day today, quite grim, especially after the fabulous few weeks we’ve had recently. It seems to have cleared up now though and I’ve got my fingers crossed for a good day tomorrow. I managed to deal with my new fringe by shoring it up with those pins your grandma used to use to keep her hairnet in place – just in case you were wondering.
By the way obviously not the pins that were specifically owned by all your grandma’s, just pins of the sort that your grandma would use.

  1. Wow, that card is awesome. It should be everyone's fortune to receive that kind of gift.The pottery looks better and better all the time. Sorry I've been getting behind on my blog reading. But I'll catch up one day.

  2. Isn't it great to get that kind of thing from kids? Or adults, for that matter …Give my regards to Finnegan when you see him. Ask him about the workshops he's done with the Cape Cod Potters.
