I trust you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are well recovered from festivities and/or dry Jan or Vegan Jan or other. Can you believe it’s February already? I honestly can’t. I think our experience of time changes as we get older… but that’s for a different post and perhaps different blog all together!
Just to let you all know that I am alive and still here! We’re all recovering from this rotten flu-stomach bug-cold that’s been going around here like the plague! But we’re slowly returning to form.
There will hopefully be some big changes in the Stratford household this year. I have plans. And they include a shed. Oh yes. Big pottery related shed plans. But let’s see how things turn out.
Looking forward to keeping this blog alive and well with some more posts and pottery related adventures! I bought a galvanised steel bin incinerator a few months ago now to do some smoke firing! I’ve been collecting paper from the shredder and looking up how to get different effects, all I need now are some bisque pots and some dry weather. I’m also playing around with designs to create a ‘range’ of some kind. And I’ve been inspired by the incredible work of The Key West Pottery – their ceramic totem poles, vibrant colours and playful pieces make me want to create something just as bright and fun for my home..
So! Lots of pottery adventures to come.
I’ve had some great comments back recently from old posts – if anyone has any tips, bargains or questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Best wishes as ever,
