Day 84: 100 Pots in 100 Days


So I threw a bowl today. I seem to have regressed slightly. MY sides are thinner but the bottom a bit bumpy and it does not have that nice line that I enjoy. Possibly this is because I am now into finishing the 100 pots and I am worried that I will not have then biscuit fired and glazed before the event on the 16th. 

So the Pot of the Day is a bottle. I have been looking at oil tops for nice little bottles or just stoppers. I know I could make one but I like the idea of keeping olive oil in a bottle. 

I continued to decorate and number the pots ready for a biscuit firing. I felt ill yesterday but a lot better today so got on with quite a bit. tis included cleaning my bedroom. Does anyone else get in a complete mess when they are hyper-focussing on something? 

I had an amused moment about Pot Number P155 – laughter is good for you!
