So today I went to the Somerset Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury. It was amazing. The shapes, decoration and techniques were inspiring.
I will talk more about them tomorrow.
Today I made three cup shapes which I am going to use to practice handles. The clay was a bit rubbish. One cup had a dry lump in the clay, one had air bubbles and the other was uneven – dry in areas and very wet in others – all in all not my most successful throw but I have got cups to try out my handles on.
I have booked onto a course too so I am going to fill in the rest of this page tomorrow as I have a lot to write about. Another apology – my internet is so slow I can’t upload any photographs as they are not downloading arrrggghhhh
There is a talk on at the SRLM which I will put up tomorrow when my internet is working
To be completed tomorrow as everything is slow and I might throw my computer across the room if I carry on tonight!
