Pottery run...or should I say walk?

Today and most Mondays is the day I take my pieces to be fired. Since I can´t have a kiln in my flat for health and safety reasons, as mentioned in a previous post, I am lucky enough to have a studio within walking distance where I can take my pots for glazing and firing. I go on Mondays because there is a technician there at lunch time but classes don´t start until two, which means social contact is kept to a minimum. It is also good for me as it is a long walk there and back.

Wednesday is my "making" day when I am actually producing pots although I also work on them other days as it is a step by step process. I am so lucky to have something I can do at home which keeps me interested and occupied during these difficult days.  

I am looking forward to my walk today as it is a nice sunny day and somewhat warmer than of late.


  1. A very interesting read - you must be very talented. Good that you can get some walking in but hope that the pots aren't too heavy! As a new reader I wondered if you sell your work or are some of the pieces given to lucky relatives as presents.

    1. Thank you Wendy. I did a ceramics degree many years ago and have taken it up again recently. The pots can get a bit heavy for carrying, so I have to limit myself! I occasionally sell a piece but prefer to give them to family who choose what they like when they come over.
