Today I just had to. . .

THROW!
I have been desperate to throw some pots for the last couple of weeks, some proper pots, not just the wee bowls I managed the other day. I’ve big big fat jugs on the brain all week too so today I just had to make some. I may well have overdone it as is my stupid habit as I’m now shattered and my finger is throbbing again. I’m always a bit wiped out after I’ve been ill so maybe big pots weren’t the things to chose, blimey kneading was hard work, I could do with a wee gopher to do all that. Anyhow I made a whole lot of big fat bellies which will have necks thrown onto them maybe on sunday, a few 4lb bellies, two 6lb-ers and an 8lb-er. It was great, I loved it and then a couple of big plant pots for my trees that are getting too big for their little pots.

There you have them, fat bellies without necks and pots for trees.

  1. Looks like a good start, Hannah. I’ve been mixing and sieving glazes in preparation for a firing, but I’d much rather be throwing. Good for you.
