Sunshine all day!

How crazy is that candlestick!?!

Here is the display case that I saw at Paisley museum on monday. These are all Jason’s pots and they are over twenty years old now, the puzzle jug at the back says 1981. He won’t have had the pottery very long at the point, he’ll have been pretty fresh up here from being at Aldermaston Pottery.
Such a beautiful day today that is has been very hard to stay at work. I just wanted to pootle out on my bike but I had so much to get on with before the weekend that I just couldn’t. I did sit out in the sun to eat my lunch though and to do some sketches for the plates I had to decorate. I got handles on the one big jug that had somehow managed to escape being handled yesterday. No idea how it hid because it’s huge!
I had some plates to slip, this tree one I did using a stolen Doug Fitch trick of wiping through the slip to get that sort of double layer in some places. My slip though was a bit thick and it dried a bit quick in the sun so I don’t know how well it will work. Probably not a patch on the afore mentioned Fitch’s use of the trick. Anyhow I did that with some slip trailing too. It’ll be interesting to see what happens at the very least.

Hmm, shoes and handbags, not my forte, I went through about a dozen different options before I did this one and had two tries on the actual plate which I don’t usually allow myself to do.

One for me.
