I was making mugs and GIO (that's Glazed inside Only) bowls today, Hugh and I cut wood for the kiln as well and a certain other person is back from T in the Park nearly in one piece, She's coming down with a lovely cold which I'm sure we will all get in the fullness of time, it's possible that Nicola caught the cold before she left from one of our visitors but I will try to keep her feeling guilty about it for as long as I can as she had such a good time there.
I think the mugs are probably the pots I make most of for any one firing, 46 will go in on one side of the kiln so 46 is what I usually make. In the past I made loads of bowls etc at a time but I have found that it's better for body and soul to not become a machine.
One other thing I would like to mention as a word of caution to would be blogger's out there, When I got back from Stirling yesterday (two sold but I had to collect the three pots that didn't from The Smiths Gallery) I popped in to the Doctors surgery for Pam's repeat prescription, Irene and Rebbecca two of our near neighbours were in there waiting by the desk, as I walked past Rebbecca said hello and giggled, I know I'm no oil painting but I don't usually get laughs for just being there so I did the usual and checked my flies, no that was OK and I don't remember saying anything particularly funny at the last pottery demo I did for the school, then she did it again and my only thought apart from her being a giggly teenager (which I didn't think she was) is that she might have read my "Grumpy" blog, I didn't know we had a younger audience but Hi there if we do! I might just have to take a wee bit more care in exactly what I say from now on though. (God forbid, I might say something rude, un' P,C, or embarrassing but then again knowing me I'll just go and do it anyway.)
