Day 43: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Day 43: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Diary

100 pots all numbered and I seem to have 92 pots in total!

Another great day in the gallery. We had a few visitors which is always lovely. I am looking forward to all the pots being back in their line. It was a bit sad looking today with some of the members missing.

I have included a picture of the kiln, of a new pot in the gallery and of the pot I threw today. 

I was too tired to turn the 4 pots so will do that tomorrow. 

News

The kiln finished its firing and everything is in tact.  

Research

To be completed

This is the headingA disaster?

So this is the first pot I rescued from total oblivion by leaving it to dry and then working on it. The video shows me making the pot to this stage. What it does not show is me rescuing it later when I had left it to dry for a while.
