Thanks for popping in. Big Day today. The Tinker’s Pottery Studio is ready to use. Wheel’s in, kiln’s in, electric’s in, water’s in – and we have lift off!!!!!!!
So excited. Dave is a star. Tomorrow he’ll put a few more shelves in – a pottery needs lotsnlotsa shelves, and a workbench island. And then we are set!
I’ve already got those little pots drying out a little, so I shall go downstairs in a bit and finish them up, ready for bisque firing. So much to learn still, so much to learn. But I’ve got over two years of pottery lessons under my belt, and plenty people I can ask for advice. The big challenge will be the glazes. Mixing my own glazes. Looking forward to it though.
It is the right time for me to branch out and explore ceramics. I love it. I blimming love pottery. And there’s so much I can carry over from Papercraftland into Pottery World! More will be revealed….
Anyway, I stared at that black painty scrap for a bit. Remember the scrap from yesterday?
It’s a work in progress, because there’s a whole hidden city in those rocks and mountains! Can you see the temple rooftops?
Let’s move in a little closer…see them now?
See those Tibetan temples, hidden in the Sacred Hills? There are steep steps leading down the mountain too…
Much clearer on a sunny day, but it’s a little overcast today.
There‘s also a bridge, which cuts across. It’s a little rickety; certainly not for the faint-hearted…
You can’t see it? Let’s move in a little closer…
Yes. It runs along along the mountain ridge. The monks use it mostly.
It leads to a wonderful secret garden, beyond the ridge….
Mmm. Amazing what you can see when you stare long enough innit!! Not finished with this, but have to step away for a while.
Time to go get potty pottery! I made another big decision today. Cut my fingernails off. You can’t throw pots with long nails. Vanity be gone! Pottery, please enter.
