This morning was full of the jobs that don't count to many people- as they weren't throwing pots on the wheel!
Dealing with post and emails, checking online, Etsy and facebook page for enquiries- and finding a "thankyou"!
Washing my "slops"..overalls and workshop handtowels
kneading and weighing clay for throwing.
Plus waiting for the sun to creep round to the workshop!!
Once it had, I threw a dozen straight sided medium mugs. Once I get into a rhythm, mugs take seven minutes...which seems a lot, but not once you consider that they wont need turning, just a quick fettle, add the handle and impress the decoration.
After a mug of tea to warm inside and out, I managed another eight mugs, bellied shape this time before my fingers became too cold and I was too tired after over two hour's throwing.
By then it was dark, cold and wet!
