Day 31: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Diary

Today I opened the small kiln to see the pots I had biscuit fired I am including my video live stream and a picture 

Below is the video of me doing a Facebook live feed as I opened the kiln!

Next Sunday you will be able to see me at the Wiveliscombe Street Market. Come and say hello! 

Research

It wasn’t until humans started to stay in one place that we started to create domestic ware. The first time I have seen bowls like this was in the Roman era. Before that the bowls seemed to be used more for cooking and storage. this might be just what I have found so far – I have posed myself a question so I will have to ask David!
