Busy days in the pottery…

There is so much to running a pottery business and this photograph kind of resembles a lot of it.

In it you can see some of our work which has been made for orders or for the upcoming fairs. We have an order book that thankfully is never empty. We could do with being in the studio every day but there’s other things need doing too…

You can also see some work by Karen Middleton who helps me out once a week in the pottery in exchange for her own making time. You can see her work and writing on her website blog Karen Middleton Ceramics.

Amongst the work on the table includes some pieces that get sold on Etsy – including some pieces that didn’t come out of the kiln the way I wanted them and so have been re-glazed and re-fired. There are also some pieces still waiting to be glazed, the white pieces at the end of the table that didn’t make it into this firing. They are waiting their turn.

If you look closely too you can also see a few tiny things made by the Kids and Clay youngsters for their model village as well as a couple of trial pieces that they have used to test out some glaze mixes…

There are some tiles made by one of our regular Wednesday night potters – trying out different surface techniques ready for when her bigger pieces are fired and need to be glazed.

And finally there are some bowls that will be added to shop orders who have been patiently waiting quite a while as I catch up from Christmas orders…

So you can imagine how busy the pottery studio is with shelves for pots that are drying, partly, made, glazed… shelves for kids projects and finished pieces waiting to be packaged up…

 

I think I need a second shed…
