Here is the pot I threw today but as it is the day before the 10 Parishes Festival I literally ran out of time - but pot 47 is here. That means that I have thrown 83 pots in my life. They look fine together. Quite a journey really.

I threw this too wet so this is a pot made in two halves. As you can see it collapsed a pit. 

I waited until the evening and pulled the top up and it was much better. 4.5lbs in this pot. One of the biggest I have made. I still need to focus on throwing with less water. 

Just made a little video of my pottery journey and the 100 Pots exhibition for 10 Parishes. 

I am quite proud!
