Day 61: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Day 61: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Diary

The Pot of the day today is one of a set of three. They should have been mugs but I let them dry too much so that are now a set of three little bowls. How cute! Today was my day off from Somerset Art works. The weather was terrible and my pottery was worse! I went for a normal pot that would last after two failed attempts at what I call a pudding bowl!

Tired and grumpy with an itchy head! No not head-lice thank goodness but probably something equally distasteful! But I did extrude handles – first time I have used our machine and I cleaned it afterwards too. My original handles were too dry. That reminds me I must go and cover them or they will be too dry tomorrow too. 

Now if I was making sculptures I would make a model that reflected my mood and it would probably turn into a head-louse even though I do not have any. 

It is good that nobody reads these!
