New pots, new workshop, nothing else new.
On that thought, I have sorted out my workshop - got rid of the large bookshelf, turfed out a load of stuff, and fitted a swish new wedging bench. The next step is to build a small kiln - probably just a small catenary arch to tide me over. I still don't have a wood supply, though.
I have also made and fired some pots with Matt - a few pictures below. Most of the pots were unglazed, and in fact, many were fired raw. This resulted in a lot of bloating in the clay body, which was a bit of a surprise, but some of the bloats aren't too intrusive I don't think. There are some nice pots. It was a 42 hour fire or there abouts.
Well, hopefully the next post won't be two months away.
