Thanks Alan.

An hour of sorting and the workshop is back to how it should be. Phew! I’ve really enjoyed the weekend but I’m exhausted. I got my bisque unpacked, it’s been sat there since wednesday last week waiting and it’s all glazed and the kiln is on again. I also had some late Spring Flingers who bought some more pots so that was good.

There are still a few stray pots hanging around in need of a place to rest but it’s all usable again in there.

My clay arrived today and was left sat sitting on a pallet in the middle of the farm yard. I thought I’d maybe shift it a few bags at a time over the next week or so. However my knight in not quite so shining armour arrived, Alan our great landlord and offered to shift it into the barn for me. In next to no time a ton of clay was out of the farm yard and piled neatly in the barn. I was very grateful to him for that as I realised today that I’m still not 100%. I must take it easier this week.

These pictures are of Hazel Campbell, Alan’s wife’s painting studio over the weekend. Hazel does beautiful gouache and oil paintings in a really lovely loose and exciting style. She mostly I think works from the landscape around us and I just love the little rows of white Galloway cottages lying against fields and hedges.

Oh and Matt asked me was I ready for Bovey Tracey. Answer “Am I nelly!”

    That’s a nice, clean studio. I had to tidy up today or I was going to go mad.Where do you store your clay in winter? Doesn’t it freeze solid out there?

  2. Hannah says:

    During the months of August to April I build a 12″ layer of whale blubber around the stack of clay to potect it Ron.

  3. Ron says:

    Ah! I knew you had some sort of special way of doing that. Lots of Americans use that same technique to stay warm in the winter here. Except it’s human blubber.
