Day 99: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Diary

Below is the pottery journey of pot 154 from good though to oops (it collapsed) and back to thank goodness I saved it by the skin of my teeth!

Five turned pots and two thrown pots. 

Research

Today I found out about stains. I found out that stains can be used in glaze, in slip and also on their own. 

What an amazing bit of kit. Already fired so it keeps its colour!
