Sweet as sugar

Have a look at the trailing on this little sweetie. It apparently lives in Haddon Hall in the Peak District according to my friend Rob. Very kind of you to send me that pic Rob, thanks a lot.

I got a bit carried away this afternoon, I had started throwing little 12oz jugs in the morning and that went well so I thought well what the heck I’ll make some 4lb ones next. These are for an order or at least one of them is for an order, wide necked jug request. They’re not a shape I’ve ever made before but I think I’ll try some more at some point. I haven’t yet worked out how the decoration is going to fit on there but we’ll see.

After that I threw a few bowls and a tall lidded jar. Then I realised that that was probably a bit too much for me at the moment but by that time it was too late and I really had enjoyed throwing them, and it’s probably good to stretch it a bit over time.
I would also like to say a huge thank you to the Post Office for making these stamps that you don’t have to lick that they do these days, I say that as I’ve spent the evening putting relevant stamps on 280 envelopes with the newest edition of the Scottish Potters Newsletter in them. Into the post they go tomorrow morning. Another one done.

  1. You may want to consider putting the newsletter online to save time and postage. Then it wouldn't cost you a bundle to send me one in Guam! Hehehe…I love the blog, and am always waiting to see what new design you come up with next. Would you consider answering some questions for my students, for their research project?
