Hung out to dry
There is a great deal of work between wedging the clay and putting the pots out in the sun to dry. So much in fact that I didn't have time to write about it.
There are only 11 days till the exhibition and the pressure is on. Since the last entry I have been working day and night, the results of which are the three hundred and fifty pots spread out on the lawn.
With the signature dinners and the exhibition as well the volume of work is not to be taken lightly. It is however very satisfying to look at the pots arrayed like this, to stand back and say, "Now THAT'S a good weeks work!"
Each board of pots takes on a pattern and can be a beautiful thing in and of itself.
Just one more run, the glazing, the firing, the finishing to go! Not much when you say it quickly.
The wheel awaits!
