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 went home early because the 2 wheels were occupied again and I thought if I started another coiled pot I would have to work on it next week and might miss a wheel opportunity yet again . 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 .
