After 11 years and some 15 firings I decided to make this year’s one, the last . It was getting difficult for people to make their stuff without an evening class to make it at.
When getting out the metal boxes, I lifted the lid and discovered a very angry wasp nest inside, I was stung three times, after a very quick visit to the doctor was able to get some anti drugs, I have a funny reaction to wasps. We had three new glazes this time two that I had made Simply Red and T1, Tina had made one called Turqueltina .
We started at 10 and the first firing at 11, the forecast was dodgy but it was very comfortable and sunny. Some of the glazes start to work later in the day but this time the results were good all the time. Star piece of the day must be Arlene’s torsos fired twice, I have never seen so many colours, she is selling them at a naturists fete, should really be naked raku.
Thank you to everyone who came along and thank you to everyone who has attended for the last eleven years.
