My pottery creations on and off the wheel.

Stop, Drop and Roll around in a tantrum!


Not in that order and not quite a tantrum, but it is time to stop. I should always know it’s time to stop when my spatial awareness goes, I get tired and sore and I drop things.

Guess what I did?

I wanted to do just one more thing before I finished, then I dropped 2 kiln posts, and the middle shelf fell sideways onto the bottom shelf, both full, and of course I broke stuff. Thankfully those ones were only going to be moulds so no need for an actual tantrum, but I am stopping!

Update: a couple of hours and a change of scenery and I went back to it, and with the broken stuff gone, I managed to fit in everything I wanted to. Just unloaded and all good 🙂

Monday: Well almost, seems a bit under fired, more like an 05 bisque instead of an 04 looking at the colour of the clay? I feel another test coming on before a full glaze load!
