Day 77: 100 Pots in 100 Days


I turned three pots at least today – I sort of lost count really. I know I did P144, P145 & P143. I then moved on to slip decoration. I painted the slip onto to nearly leather hard clay – got a bit impatient and went a head even though the pots really were not quite ready. The pot 143 was almost dry so I painted the slip on while I was turning it. I cut out a design I like on 123 as I wanted to see what happened when the clay with more oxide was fired with elements cut out. I was not sure if it would show. 128 and 141 have also been burnished and cut into and had slip added.

Pot I 46 had slip added (like Pot 145 yesterday) before it has been turned. I will enjoy seeing how it looks when I have turned it. 

The final picture is of my sister who is going hungry for our climate. I think she is amazing. I wanted to put here a link to two causes that she feels very strongly about and I hope that others who read this will add their names to if they feel they want to. I have. 

Petition: To have a law against Ecocide in the UK

Petition: To introduce an immediate moratorium on airport expansion in the UK

and finally – here is the poster for the ceramic talk by David Dawson and I. Don’t forget to book tickets!
