Pottery at last

There wasn’t a class last week because the tutor was ill – we will get an extra to make up . In the meantime my glazed pot was finally fired :

Apparently I don’t have to pay for it – unusual since everywhere else I’ve had to pay a firing charge including at school !

I also glazed my one wheel made bowl –


after grinding off some of the blue slip which seeped under the paper stencils .  And I completed the arabesques on the double spouted effort . It now awaits its first firing .

I love handbuilding  but I came to this class to learn wheel technique ! Besides I’d rather build with my own choice of clay , using my own coloured slip and glaze recipes .
