I finally attacked my work area opening it up with the addition of a new giveaway work bench - can't believe my luck as its made my little area so much more user friendly. My shelves have found a new home in the garage section so now I have more natural light. Of course I immediately filled my bench up with work - about time as I have had too much time away from the clay. Now the glazing begins! I am a tad inspired as I have sold some of my pots at the 'Between Seasons Show' at Cudgegong Gallery !!!
Nicholas was so interested in my hand movements trimming so he wanted 'up' and then helped compressing and then decorating with some deft strokes. He will have a record of this little event with his Nona. Of course there's always the unexpected in this household and today was no exception - a frog let out a croak from the icecream bucket in front of us. Well this had Nicholas enthralled and a little apprehensive even though he loves frogs and we have to check one of their favourite haunts every day. We decided to take this frog to the frog house and see if he would be happier away from the constant prodding of trimming tools.
So here he is ready to disappear into the depths - overnight he must have decided he wanted to remain a potting frog and returned to his former residence amid the tools! Nicholas will be fascinated again when we sit at the wheel.
Tomorrow I must finish glazing and load that kiln......
