My pottery creations on and off the wheel.

A bit of colour on the wheel

Finishing off the small pots I started last week and felt like a bit of colour to brighten me up. So these ones have a bit of  white slip coloured with cobalt and red pigment stain, like an underglaze painted on at the un-fired clay stage. Left the bases clear of colour, just because I like the terracotta colour too!

Have left these a bit long and they dried out too much as you can see in the photos, but I got there. I would normally turn the top of the pot one day and carve the foot the next when the clay has firmed up and is still a little softer, but stuff just happens on it’s own timetable sometimes and gets in the way:-)

There are two things that without, I wouldn't recognise my life. One is my cheeky beagle Baxter who answers to all sorts of endearments starting with "B" except his actual name :-) and my pottery. They both make me happy and hopeful.
