BOTTOMS, RINGS AND THINGS.

Today I will be going to the Pottery Studio and turning me pots bottoms! That's when you flip the pot over and shape the bottom and put your 'potter's mark' on it.... mine is an intertwined CJH.. my initials. Every potter should have their own 'mark' .. for posterity! *smiles*. I've had mine for years... everything I make has my mark on it. (even me quilts!)

After that I'm catching a train into Newmarket to pick up my Diamond Ring ... which has been fixed... neat! I have missed it.

THEN I am going to come home and have a workout! It's going to be a busy day.. and I love that! No time to be bored, no time to raid the pantry... whoop whoop!

ABOVE AND BELOW: Before and after turning, and putting me 'mark' on them.
ABOVE AND BELOW: before and after.

AND the best thing? I can go into the Pottery Rooms and use them for FREE! Another place I looked at going to was charging $20 a DAY! My Pottery Group costs me $30 a YEAR!

AWESOME... AWESOME... FREAKING AWESOME! Gunna go to town now... get back me sparklies!
I took the train to town... picked up me ring.. then back on the train to Greenlane, where I met 'the man' and we went to lunch together. That was really nice.
Then back on the train to home. Picked up the kids and now? Gunna have a rest!
End of Day: I'm feeling decidedly jaded... and am going to go to bed early! nite nite.

  1. If your pots are as wonderful as your quilts, I can't wait to see them. The problem with clay is that it ruins the manicure. Can you wear gloves?

  4. I swear Chris, I don't know where all of your creativity comes from! I wish just a little could rub off on me!

    By the way, I've been gone for a couple of days - White water rafting. We had the coolest guide ever, and he was from Wellington. His awesome accent made me think of you!

  5. For me "throwing a pot" is something that might happen if I got mad about something while I was cooking...I like your way better. Is there a chance one of your awesome pots might be a part of your upcoming giveaway?
