Day 63: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Diary

So still not well but continuing to pot. feeling proud. 

So what news? Well I decided to get tighter with throwing. So mugs it is. I got a large 3.5lb ball of clay and split it into 5 lumps and made 5 mugs. 

tried to get them even and thin. examples below. 

No other news really. Just been talking to visitors about SANHS and letting them know we own the museum, what the website is about and that we have one of the biggest collections of ceramics in the uk. Only bettered by the V&A.
