ahaa..! look what i found cardew book#2 and yes i found the picture of the outside of the cottage where mrs cardew met her untimely end...
this one has lots of lovely primitive pots from MC's time in nigeria..and all kinds of drawings from the big rope wheel, where's my servant..? to the brick molds i saw a few of these at the black country museum in dudley too, some with lovely curved corners..
and some really useful info in the back App.8 square roots below unity..! Bottle kiln building and the lovely drop molds that i used at dougs....
got a little studio time this afternoon made a few mugs and some raku bottles, it was nice to just sit and get my hands into clay after 2 weeks off.. hopefully i can remember what i've learned about handles and get back to pulling some rather than my reliable cheats way of extruding..i do like the flatter kind so thats where i'll be aiming, everything is under plastic not taking any chances with the weather, its been a tad windy what..?
what an event the kiln firing was yesterday, I will be v. happy when the football club gets over to their new rooms, lets just say rather loud and carpark obstacles...!
