The blossoms are just starting to come out. Snuffled a branch on the ride back from the kiln

Spring is on its way...

awhile between drinks

It's been awhile between drinks but finally i'm back at the wheel and making some progress

I've been throwing off the hump this week - and it's been a revelation. It's fast, flowing and gives a more natural feel to the pots.

And I've been mucking around with some black slip as well, to provide a contrast to the white.

We'll have to see how they work out. These pictures are of raw pots so they'll change quite a bit once they're fired and glazed. Hopefully the black will stand out more and the white will ping. Fingers crossed, but you never know with clay. It has a life of its own!

And the background to the shots... the underpainting for Jems next painting. It's been on the packing and sending table for a few weeks now!!
