Day 76: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Diary

Well I have yet to throw my pot today. It is 11.08 so this will be short so I can go and make the pot and then put it online later before I sleep. 

I went on a walk with the fluffy puppy today and enjoyed a walk with my current beloved in Cheddar . We live in the most beautiful country and I was struck by a sudden fear that we are all taking our planets future too lightly and that we should act and try to save our planet. 

It effects the blog as I got sidetracked with my sister who is campaigning for XR and a bit of research about fracking but when I came back to my little reality I realised that I had to throw a pot! I have carried on with my interest in slip. Still on iron oxide. 

Todays cup is using burnished and un – burnished white stoneware. I like the simplicity of this design and have incorporated the black burnish-ware of early Roman with the South Somerset cup design. 

What larks pip!
