Day 51: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Diary

A short one today as I was preparing for Somerset Art Weeks. I made a flat plate today. I kept the foot really large so that it would hold the weight while it dried and I intend to turn it away. I like the look of thin flat thrown pots. The shape seems beautiful and I can imagine glazing with slips. I hope dad is going to show me that process very soon. 

 

I also put out  the 106 pots that I have thrown in my life and took a picture which I will try and show you. It is a panorama and I am not sure it will work but one can but try! It has and here it is in its full glory.

 

Pot 106

I threw this pot late after preparing for Somerset Art Weeks. very tired and liking a flat design. Quite hard to do so I left a lot of foot. Will try and turn it tomorrow morning.

News

Cat Mills dropped her jewellery over so that I can exhibit her work for a while. I am very chuffed to get her work here. She is an inspiration and her jewellery divine. I wear it!
