I'm still going to pottery and finally I've got to the stage that even though the things I make on the wheel are still a bit squinty, they are now thinner and you don't need muscles like Popeye to lift them.
I've been sticking to the pale colours and I'm having a bit of a dot fest!
The good thing is we really are using them all and I'm still loving it.
Here's some small unglazed stuff. The front three were made on the wheel and were just me having a mess around. One of them got mashed round the rim when I picked it up and another is totally squint - I could say I meant it to be like that, but that would be a big fat lie!! The back one is a hand made pinch pot to go with my rustic dotty ones that I made a while ago.
These are some dotty, finished bowls. They're actually quite big and I admit to absolutely loving them and being somewhat delighted that they look nice.
And the rustic dotty ones that I use all the time, so I'm going to make a set. I just glazed the small one and I've got a couple of larger ones waiting to be fired.
Newly glazed pinch pot and what it should come out like once it's been fired again!!
And here's the squinty one. I painted wee blue flowers on it. It might be cute once its fired!
It's raining buckets today ( after a few absolutely stunning days where
we've done loads outside) so I'm having an inside day. Glazing some
plates and making macarons. We'll have to see how these come out as I
haven't made any for eons! I've turned the kitchen table into some sort of odd work station!
