5 Weeks To Go

Beakers
I am certain to have w-a-y too many pots by the time I load the kiln in mid November. That is an ideal situation to pack a kiln...lots of choices. So I'm feeling no pressure and really getting lots thrown. I finished up these cups and have since thrown larger bowls, 1 pint jugs, large casseroles, a few cups and saucers, 4 storage jars and couple of 9 lb. vases. Oh, what fun!

This is a famous bowl of Michael Cardew's, followed by my interpretation. Winchcombe makes a rounder version. Mine needs up a little more angular. You'll see what I mean when I trim them.

That is an inspiring bowl (saw the MC exhibition in Bristol in 1974/5)

the weeks are flying by!
It is always good to have more pots then space- gives one the need to fire again.

Good to see you madly making pots, Daniel. I always loved that round serving bowl of yours.
