....Brrrrr back in the UK, well Kent to be precise.
The first week of April was a shock, back to the cold and rain!!! Then a new studio (for me) to explore and clean, lots of clay to recycle that also means wedge and above all a new wheel... I always find a bit tricky to adjust to a wheel. Sometime, I feel as a wheel is part of me, an extension of my own body, it has to fit... Philosophy a part, April it has been a month for adjustments. A bit of throwing and handle practising...getting better. I am starting to be pleased with my handles. Not perfection reached yet, but content!! One day I will show my handles too..

It was a bit warmer especially with all the firing, I have been doing. Mike has a small gas fire kiln which I have packed (biscuit), and fired. I have also done a glaze oxidation firing and earthenware firing... I have also been busy with hand building: boxes and candles holders.
Some of the hand building
Sorry no photos for oxidation firing and earthenware... but packing the big kiln for a glaze firing...
|Voila', the last one....|

See you next time :-)
