Day 44: 100 Pots in 100 Days


My first job was to empty the kiln. I made a facebook live video that you can see on my facebook page but I will also upload here. The pots came out well which is good. I realised I had missed two that had not been fired! What a numpty.

Today I turned five pots and threw three pots. I definitely like jugs. The one that wasn’t a jug would have been one if I had not preferred it as a pot. 

Apart from that and cooking salmon for tea I just manned the gallery and enjoyed myself in the sun. What a glorious day. 

My ability to talk about ancient ceramics and the story of pots is definitely getting better. I just need to translate it into this blog!
