Thursday Morning Raku

Raku firing at West Street Potters on Thursday morning.  Usual elusive colours, breakages and smokefest…but lots of good results.  Of my stuff, the rabbits who’s ears remained intact after the last biscuit firing came out ok, their noses could have been blacker though, and the bowl had lovely crazing on the white glaze.  I like the areas of resist, but the red glaze could have been a bit more punchy…  Found this bowl knocking about the pottery, didn’t even realise it was one mine, so the fact that it is now has the privilage of sitting on the coffee table is remarkable.

White Rabbits, the ones that still have their ears.

Christmas Pot Shop

We had a fantastic display of pots for the pot shop at the Farnham Pottery Christmas Market.  A real delight to see everyone’s efforts laid out and for sale.  Considering the economic climate this Christmas and the freezing cold, there were quite a few people around and although it was largely the low priced items that sold, the event can be considered a success.  I’m glad we were inside with the heating on, the poor people with stalls outside were blue by the time 4pm came round.  Thanks to everybody who contributed and helped out.
