Hi there, Welcome to my first post on my new blog for Argyll Pottery, hope you enjoy this one & others to follow. These picture's were takin in October of last year which was Hugh & myself's first firing without Alan.
As you can imagine the pressure was on to get it right & make Alan proud. When we opened the kiln we were chuft with the results :) as we both thought Alan would be pleased.

Although nothing is ever quite perfect as one of our cones decided to attach itself to a close by posy pot hehe we were both amused by this & have kept it as a momento. If this is the biggest problem we have then im sure we will be very happy.

Since im new to all this, if there is any tips or info anybody can give, please do.
Thanks, Nicola
