I have had so much work to glaze and fire, that I started back in the Autumn. I have been rather quiet on the blog front because of this, I am afraid.

It never fails to amaze me, the surprise you get when you open the kiln for the first time. I am hopeless and end-up sneaking a peak under the lid when it cools to 100 degrees! I never know how the pieces will come out. I make a rough guess at the colour, but the reaction is always different to what I expect.

There is a real mixture of work from exhibition and gallery pieces to Etsy shop work and my experiments with making jewellery.
