I've just done another batch of sheep , lets hope they sell like "hot cakes" over the Easter holidays!!
I arrived earlier and just worked straight through today...and paid for it by forgetting my spare specs. Not to worry, I'm using my spare, spare specs....having mislaid the new pair last October after only having them for two months. Bother!!!
The platters were just right to have their feet turned and cut . I put holes in the feet as well so that they can be hung on a wire against a wall. Plate hangers ruin rims!! Everything has been finished, now I have to be patient in drying them before firing.
The nights have turned cold again- I had to scrape the ice off the car windows this morning. At least it has been pleasant and sunny during the day. Although we do need more rain to replenish the ground water it is a relief to be able to dry pots and clothes outside and to get on with gardening too.
Time to clear the decks and sort the glazes. I'll do a few glaze tests as I've been a bit lax on them lately. I like to have at least one test in every glaze firing.
