This morning the workshop in Abergavenny was too cold and the garden too- so I had alternative work- house cleaning! It is much more satisfying cleaning other people's homes...one is appreciated!!
By lunchtime the sun was out and after lunch I turned the boardful of mugs and added the handles too. The sky clouded over again and although the forecast was not for frost it was feeling very like it as dusk approached. I covered the work with plastic and a towel...and we'll keep hoping!!.
The shape is going well, the handles improving slowly. We're thinking now that we should be producing these in porcelain and aiming more up-market. Those already made wont go to waste and have been instrumental in my getting used to a new shape, different handles and a different wheel.
We have been discussing glazing, now some have been bisque fired and we can move forward towards some finished work.
