Hard work

If you want something badly it normally means hardwork.

I have for a long time wanted to fire the pots with a real live flame ,4 years ago I bought a secondhand gas kiln,this turned out to be a waste of time and money. So I have bought some bricks and am going to build a kiln at the bottom of the garden, I have asked the fairies that live there,they have said they don’t mind but are unwilling to help.Their union has said that hodding bricks is against their fairy rights,and working practises.Have applied to the fairyland council for planning permission to build it here……………with 341 various grades of hti bricks,all I need now is a few days yet more materials and of course the Hard work.


About timbartell

I was born in a flat in Lambeth the name of which was, Wedgewood house,China walk estate.I'd forgotten this until recently,it dawned on me the significance of the names after I had become interested in pottery/ceramics.I think of myself as a potter in the most practical sense,making pots for people to use.I have never had any formal training,I took it up when the table tennis class was full.My first flat was in the same road as a pottery centre, Elmwood pottery, the best in London, 18 sessions a week and a real community. I love my craft and bore everyone with it, so am grabbing this chance to bore more people via this blog.There may be the odd interesting item, here's hoping.

    Hey go for it Tim, there is nothing boring about pots. They just take up lots of room. Once you have one you want lots more.
