I tried to throw a couple of trial shapes yesterday, but things were just wrong.
Moral. Don't start when you're tired, and don't start without centreing yourself.
Today , after turning the clocks forward, cleared from a misty start to a warm day. The days may be unseasonably hot but the nights are not, and the workshop was decidedly cold! Once the sun was on the roof life improved and I started by putting clay on boards to dry and kneading clay for today's throwing.
I had a few shape false starts and ended up with a nice bellied mug and jug shapes. These will have stencilled words (coffi, te......) They sold well before and I have someone already interested in them.
They will also fit nicely round some more bigger bowls which need making. It is a good thing that warm and dry weather has been forecast for two more days!
I need to work out a stencil for a bike tyre track , for an order. Also one for a Celtic design with horses, ordered a while back, luckily by a customer who is willing to wait!!
