For most of today we have had heavy showers..with rain in between!!
A home workshop day was the best therefore and I haven't even been up to the allotment!!
First came finishing the jars...
Next, after lunch, I had intended to start packing the kiln for a bisque with what was ready. I started fettling lightly and realised....nothing is dry enough yet.
At least all the jugs , jars and tankards and bowls have all been fettled, all (all?!!) they have to do is dry!!
I started on The Commission... a few ideas have gone down on paper, but nothing satisfactory.
I just "went for it" The base was paddled out, not rolled, then I started coil and throw, using two wooden rib tools- this is in Crank, a heavily grogged clay. We're talking about far coarser than coarse sandpaper here!!
I didn't want to risk going any further.
The top inch has been wrapped so that I can work on it again when the walls have stiffened.
I'm really enjoying this!
As I finished, a knock came on the window.....
