Some of Sunday nights effort

Last Sunday I worked a bit on my kneading, still find spiral kneading turns out like some kind of perhistoric shell creature but double handed kneading I can do so I think Istick with that. Practiced drawing up cylinders and worked on my idea for mugs the two on show are the least wonky and will get their handles as soon as they harden up but its just so cold in the shed it takes ages to get pots to leatherhard!

Brrrrrr chilly

Hello Blog

Well this is my first post and to keep it simple I thought I would attach some pics taken over Christmas. Have been in shed once this week and learn t a very valuable lesson don't throw clay that was kneaded weeks ago and gone a bit hard because its impossible to centre and it is like sand paper! Made a wee bowl but the base is a bit thin (flower pot?) so might mess about joining it to something else to make a sort of large goblet thing?
