You know some weeks are just great for production time, the weather was fantastic, the clay was good consistency and time was on my side.
It was a tad mad with hours of handling the same work and it's those days that can really mess with ya head re value and time etc.
I just needed to get stuck in and make and get the work out there as we are at the pointy end of the year sales wise and two events down with three more to go.
and these lovely slippery pieces were under wraps for months, the cups needed foot cleaning up and handles and the jugs still leather hard needed just thumbing and handles.
and what a day, brown and white slip flying everywhere…
that's why I work outside with these and a one handed cricket moment as a cup flew out of my grip whilst I was marbling it….
it tumbled into the air and spun gracefully, and with a split second to think shall I dive after it or let it fall….I dove!…..one handed catch just on the foot, thanks for the applause…
I was pretty pleased with that hand to eye coordination considering I couldn't catch a ball if I tried but apparently cups!!! yes!!!
and events coming up next Independent Makers Sale at Mr Sunshines Cafe Thebarton Saturday 30th November 11-2pm and The Wheaty Christmas Sale Saturday 14th December 12-3pm
Oh and the car! how embarrassmenting and the peeps just sneak in at the end of the day and drive off…not a word…nothing
So I was neighbourless on one side and spread out just a tad to take advantage of the lovely sunshine…
anyhoo loads of new stuff and galleries to stock up over the next couple of weeks…have a good marketing season my friends!
