local clay and ash 2
Late November we started refitting our workshop with better windows and insulation. The holidays and recent storms have slowed the project somewhat but we are back at it now. I work on a Korean style kick wheel that spins on a post set in concrete. I have a work table built around it that serves as a seat as well. The next task will be chipping the post out of the concrete dismantling the bench and moving my work area into the larger space. The old log building where I have thrown for twenty two years will be used for dry clay storage. I'll leave you with a quote from a North Devon harvest jug.." No art with potter's can compare, we make our pots of what we potters are."
