No making today, all the clay is too soft. The new bag and the throwing slops have been drying all day on ware boards, the new clay in little "hump backed bridge" shapes, the slop in sloppy heaps.
The new clay has now been wedged (mixed by kneading) and is nearly all back in its bag.
The slops are, well, a bit less sloppy! With this weather they were not drying atall in the workshop.
I have sorted a little paperwork, into different mushroom trays- to be sorted and not mixed up!
I have done three loads of washing, and with today's breeze it has nearly all dried, even though it was still cold.
I looked at the bookshelves-and they looked back. Hello, friends!
Most of the afternoon has been taken up with trying to rationalise my price list. Are my pots the right price? I have looked at pots on Etsy and other potters' websites, trying to avoid the highly priced (but very nice!) ones. It is all very well working out "this pot costs me x to make"...what you need to know as well is what is the price that a pot will sell for, even if it cost more to make?
Some pots you make because you love making that shape. An indulgence, perhaps. On the other hand we have to pay the household bills.
