bowls

They are getting bigger.....I must watch that they don't get to big to fire!!

The dream of a place outside the village where I could build and fire a decent kiln and have my own garden is so tantalising.

We always talked of the ideal, being halfway up the Mountain, to accommodate both our needs!
He needed to be near his stock, I need a water supply a bit more reliable than just rainfall.

Ah well, back to working with what there is!

My late, much missed father always said, "Plan A, win the lottery, Plan B, go to work on Monday morning" !!

I can't say that I buy many lottery tickets...so I'm just working on throwing better pots!! It has been such a pleasant day today, nice breeze, warm sun, working has come easier.

My dear dreamer of a husband mentally 'buys' lottery tickets every week, plans what he would like to buy with it....(with out even parting with any money) and then goes back to work on monday.... don't give up on the day dream xx

I've always wondered how much fuel a large kiln takes.

It sounds as if the work is really good for you....so glad it's going well.
Actually buying a Lottery ticket only very slightly increases the chances of winning.
