. After the firing and glazing of these pots it’s all stop at the moment. The kids are out of school and skinny dipping in the local stream and I am lazing on the river bank. I suppose it’s a good time to reflect and contemplate what I need to be in place in the workshop for late September. The second hand kiln will be fixed around October time I think, which will hopefully be just right to start experimenting with different glazes. In the mean time I can pug some clay and Finnish the clay trap from the wheel. Also I suppose some extra shelves and the sink being put in would be a helpful plan.
