Blogging has taken a back seat for a bit!
MM is making sure that I get work done . I've made more mugs, and the jugs are developing well. I've started some slightly bigger bowls too, which need turning soon.
I'm not 100% happy with the clay body, but I think that it is just too fresh, having been mixed in the factory straight after the Christmas break. It is far too soft to throw straight from the bag, and also I'm finding little lumps of something that looks like Yellow Ochre. Yes, I do use that in glazes, and I do have some unrefined Yellow Ochre in a tub. But there is none lurking loose in the workshop.....and it isn't something you want to find in a Special White Stoneware.
Meanwhile we are still without rain. I'm holding back on sowing some things until we do get rain, but I'm wondering how long that will be. Low pressure systems are due in on Thursday, rain is forecast by the weekend. Live in hope.
All will be well, as they say.
