Day 72: 100 Pots in 100 Days


So today I have been checking on pot numbers and photographing the most recent pots. Tomorrow it is extruding handles and making slip. Sunday I put handles on. I am making more cups. I went for a simple coffee cup as I was tired and it is late. It is funny how a simple and beautiful shape should now be a go to easy shape when I am tired. I used to find that difficult.

The poster is being designed as we speak. Louisa is a star. I am looking forward to the event on the 16th. I am going to have the entire journey as a film going on behind me as I talk. Maybe a long visual pictured photographs – probably not! 

I must remember not to add to the amount I am shoving into this project. I have a tendency to overdo things. 

Oh and I have made 104 pots now in the 100 Pots timeline and 114 in total! and I am only on day 72. 

If I carry on like this I will easily have at least 150 pots. I might have to do something with them or I will be in an overcrowded situation!
