ah the platitudes...





























totally exhausted... I've fired 3 kilns, and had a good bash at some clay today and yes i have the splattered clothes to prove it...new wedging technique ...when the clays's too firm slice it and dunk it in a bucket of water then smack it down on the wedging table, works a treat ...just a tad messy!!!!! anyhoo after 2 bashes at the big stuff and losing it, a firm word was had with self..! slow down!! the big stuff takes a different kind of rhythm... well after that the fruits above and of course by the time i've made 4 of them and all the kilns are done i'm well into the pace of affore mentioned platteridge...well a good days work and time to wrestle with the new wireless modem...na i give up !! another day....

  3. I'll try that dunking trick - sounds splatty though. My last batch of clay is all way too hard to through - I try to remember to have slices of it with damp cloths in between the day before, but soemtimes I forget. Great you sold some pieces at the Terrace sala opening, it looks an impressive place.
