Day 71: 100 Pots in 100 Days


well today was a lovely day. Having driven back from Alvechurch after a wonderful gig at The Tower of Song in Stirchley last night (where we had 3 encores!) I slept in. Today was mainly going to be about snoozing and I did that incredibly well.  

On the pottery front? Well I taught Mike how to turn his first pot (you can see his pot below). I am a proud teacher as he did very well indeed. I turned three of my own pots (86, 86a, 87), made some covers to stop them drying out too quickly and threw one of my own (89). The tallest one yet at 20cm. I went for a bottle shape as I like it and wantd to burnish it with a levigated slip that I hope to make tomorrow. 

Todays mug now has a handle and is inspired by one of the pots in the SANHS collection so I thought I would include both pictures to remind you. 


Have a wonderful night and see you tomorrow. xx
