Move in a little closer…

Move in a little closer…

Hi there, 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…

Pop a poppet in your basket!

Pop a poppet in your basket!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. A different kind of session in the SHACK SHAC today, but I think our Shack friends enjoyed it. I certainly did! I so seldom get time to complete a project live – we are always galloping on to the next new thing, when really we should be figuring out how to finish the project in front of us! So cool to actually stay on the bus until the end of the track for once!…

Ahhh Jayne….

Ahhh Jayne….

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Just clearing away the wreckage in my little artroom from 3 hours of live Skype TV – …and Jayne is on my mind. Darling Jayne Nestorenko. Wouldn’t she have been chuffed to bits to know that her stamps sold out again. Why wouldn’t they? It’s not hard to make masterpieces with this art! Jayne’s Small Winter Scenes Collection Here’s a simple sample I made during the 1pm Show. Nothing but a black ink pad,…

Blue

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Thursday’s blog is always blue, right? Blue. Do you like the colour blue? There are so many variations of blue though! Our school uniform at Fort Pitt Grammar School was a Royal blue, so I was cured of that colour for a while after wearing it every day for 5 years! Ironically, our Clarity livery is a bright bold blue – just a little darker than our old blazers! If I had to match…

Oh Joy !

Oh Joy !

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Well, you certainly knew where to find me! And for the forseeable future, right? Oh Joy. But despite all the Pandemic panic once again, there is a great deal for me to be grateful for, and I must remind myself of that daily. These two little fellas for a start. They bring an innocence and energy into the home, like fresh air, and all bad, sad thoughts are exorcised as soon as they appear….

Rain stopped play…

Rain stopped play…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Our Raku Pottery got rained off today, but we certainly gave it our best shot! Got absolutely soaked through to the bone. Still enjoyed it though. Managed one kiln load, but then decided to reconvene next Saturday instead. So Sue and I came home, dranks loads of tea and chatted the hind legs off the proverbial donkey all afternoon. Much better. Time to go get set for tomorrow’s TV now. Stay safe Love always,…

Come on! Budge up!! I’m here to stay, so smile for the camera!! Our little Viking warriors are certainly settling in! When they first landed last Sunday, they were very tiny and timid. It feels like they’ve double in size in…

The Vikings have landed!

The Vikings have landed!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Delighted to share some happy news for once! THE VIKINGS HAVE LANDED! This is great news indeed… Please meet Erik the Red and Ragnar Lodbrok! Let me tell you the story of the two young Vikings. These two little warriors were abandoned by their feral mother, who left them in a garden near Grantham, middle England. Lucky for them the garden belonged to a kindhearted couple, Gina and Mark, who took them in and…

Oooh La La! Linda!

Oooh La La! Linda!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. The Pergamano Festivities wouldn’t be complete without a huge round of applause – nay, a standing ovation – for Linda Williams, that wonderful Welsh lady who just blows us away with her creativity and talent every single time. She has taught me so much! She shares her knowledge so willingly, so freely. I wonder how many thousands of parchers she has held by the hand and guided them through the art. She and I…
