Not made much since last week as I have been away, my succulent planters are still sitting drying slowly, but they have been moved off my table so I can do some slip casting. I have some mugs which have been cleaned and are drying. There’s one I broke when I was cleaning it, they are very fragile at this stage. As you can see slip casting is a very messy business, especially if you don’t have the strap securing the mould tight enough. Last time I did this I was pouring in slip wondering where it was all going, until I looked down at the floor. This time I used 3 straps to be sure it was secure.
Also there’s a flattened bottle that has just come out the kiln, it’s a customer’s own champagne bottle which has been flattened to hang on the wall. I’m about to pack it up and head off to the Post Office.
