I've spent the weekend at Nic and Sabine's, on their 'Throwing Large' course. I hadn't thrown any pots since October 2011 - not really wanted to, not got around to it - but have come back mildly inspired.
I learnt about making pots through coiling, using Nic's doughnut method, and in parts. The bottle above has a silly handle, but must have been 16 or 18 inches tall - coiled.
The jar above is about 6 inches tall - just used to test technique of making in two parts. Although I'd tried all these methods, the only one that had worked for me was making pots in parts, but I reckon the pots I made were more chance than anything.
Can't say much more as my internet hasn't been working, but all in all, it's been a brilliant weekend. I think Nic is thinking of doing another in September - I can highly recommend.
That is all.
