Sitting by the river today in the sunshine watching the world go by was a real treat. It's been a weekend of fun and friends after a few weeks of being flat out! It was great to get these out of the kiln towards the end of the week, and they have now been uploaded to my shop. It had been a disappointing week in pottery in some ways, with crazy reactions and minor flaws making a couple of pieces unsaleable, but I was very happy with these two pieces. Both of them have the same crackled effect in the bottom, made with recycled glass from a wine bottle. Tomorrow I'll hopefully get the first few test pieces of my poppy head bowls out, and I am hoping they work well... fingers crossed! As always, feel free to give your opinion!
