  • The Photo by that I should have posted yesterday morning!  But to be honest I was so overwhelmed by the number of people visiting, looking and buying that I totally forgot. Had a fantastic day and it was lovely to meet fellow IG potters and lots of other wonderful potters at the Independent Ceramics Market, Stoke Newington.  @hackneyfleamarket

  • Process .... trimming a grey porcelain bowl. Normally my left hand would be on the top of the pot holding it steady and also holding my right hand steady but I had to let go so that I could take the picture!  I love using a foam covered bat for trimming bowls and other wide pieces as it protects the rims from damage, I can lift and examine the piece whenever I want and it is quick and easy. The spinner disc on the top is also brilliant as it spreads the pressure from my finger on the pot whilst turning and stops the base of the piece from being distorted. I used to use an upside down bottle lid but found that my finger would sometimes stickcatch on the lid whereas with the spinner with its indent in the centre, this doesnt happen. Little things that make the job a bit easier, faster and smoother  @scarvapotterysupplies

  • Old hands, new(ish) mug. Note the fingernail on the ring finger which has been worn away from contact with the wheel head while throwingpulling up the clay. And the bright red palm you ask ... well, I dont know why but Ive always had weird red palms where the redness stops dead at the wrist. Anybody ever seen this before? If you are wondering why Im showing my hand off see last few posts ...pottershands
  • Working hands, old(ish) hands, A process shot of me turning a foot ring on a small bowl. My left hand is supporting the bowl and is also joined to my right hand and supporting it, keeping everything firmly in control whilst turning away some of the excess clay at the base of a bowl to form a foot ring. Happy Monday lovely people.   91magazine_handmade
