Today I have been. . .

. . . throwing bottoms of jugs. I know they look weird but bear with me a couple of days would you.

Thanks for all the votes on the postcard issue, it seems a clear cut decision on behalf of you folks, watch this space.

Do you know what is really scary? Last year I balked at the idea of buying lead bisilicate at around £75 per 25kg, this year, hold on to your chairs, around £140! Talk about inflation.

Had wiggly tin delivered today for my shed roof but my shed builder has been called of down to Portland of all places. Well what’s another few days when it’s taken me this long already. Ho hum.
Baby hare and big bad rook just before the bird dived at the hare. You will be pleased to know the hare did a great job of running away fast. Phew!

    Sorry about the price of the lead silicate. Have you always used lead in your glazes. I know it makes a great clear coating for those exquisit slipware decorations on your pots. I would be happy to help you develop some borosilicate glazes. Your work is really beautiful.

    In New Zealand 25 kg of lead bisilicate is $409.50. The NZ dollar is currently at about 38p. Using one of those online currency converters that works out at just over 159 GB Pounds. It is Frightening!Peter.

    The borosilicate glazes are usually made by using commercial frits. Ferro has a line of good frits. The frits combine borosilicate with alkali, alkaline-earth and alumina. You can see a data sheet on this link:http://www.lagunaclay.com/catalog/pdf/lcc_fritdata.pdf. Often you can use them for the main component of your glaze.
