In conjunction with The British Museum Radio 4 have been running this series called The History of the World in One Hundred Objects. I’ve been listening in when I can and it’s a cracker. Today’s piece was a 7,000 year old pot from the Jomon area of Japan, thought to be where pottery started. It’s a great listen for potters. Follow this link if you want to but I’m not sure if you can listen from abroad.
Great project, you can upload your own objects too, things that you think are important historically.
Work wise today I have been mostly throwing black slip all over the workshop and I have packed a bisque for the first time this year. It feels like I haven’t managed to get very much done this week though it also feels like I haven’t stopped either, frustrating really.
Pots in their new homes
