Some pots from the last firing.

This first pic is of a handled bowl that I done. You might have seen this shape before from Alan's blog as it's a shape that Alan normally done. It is one of a batch of ten that I was pleased with the results. Some were glazed only on the inside & others all over.
This is one of the first flan dishes that i tried, found the shape easy enough but will need to practice my combing.

Here is a combination of myself & Hugh's pots, the four beakers are Hugh's & the jug is mine.

Took advantage of the sunshine today & photographed some of the pots outside as it shows up the glaze & decoration nicely. The cut handled bowl & casserole pot are Hugh's & the salad server at the front is mine.

Here is a collection of myself & Alan's tulip vases done in the granite glaze. This is a shape that is popular in the shop so it was important that we could replenish the little stock we had left of them. Both myself & Hugh are enjoying opening the kiln & seeing the pots we have never tried before, it's a nice feeling when it works & even better when sell fast. :)

Hungover firing.

I got back to work on Tuesday while Hugh was finishing packing the kiln, nice tight pack. We fired on Wednesday, unpacked on Fri & I'm pleased to say it was a success.
The first pic is the front pack & the second is the back. There's been plenty of new pots for me to try plus a few new shape's for Hugh too, will post some pic's of them soon.

Why ive been such a bad blogger.

Well it's the festival season again & I've been off seeing the best band's, dj's & friends while sunbathing in the great Scottish weather & dancing the night's away. The first picture is of myself & my friend Kirsty on the big wheel at T in the Park in Kinross, Perthshire.
There where 85,000 people a day at the festival, this pic gives an idea of the scale of it.

This is a pic of the main stage where I seen so many great acts including me & Alan's band of '08
Some great art work aswell, came across these randomly in the middle of a field & thought they were fab.
Always fancied having a go at some spray painting.
