3BT – sudden improvement, cylinders, bwuck-buck, please?

3BT

1. I move a pile of bedding that has been stacked on the drawers for ages. We’d stopped seeing it as something to put away but its tall bulkiness had swamped the space. The room is instantly lighter and tidier with it gone. 2. I have my first proper at-home throwing session in the tiny […]

The last time I vomited

I remember, quite clearly, the last time I vomited. Some people vomit quite casually or quite frequently but not me. The last time I vomited was on the 19th of December 1996. (If I’ve told you I’ve “been sick” in the meantime, it was either a lie to get out of doing something I’d find […]

3BT – foot/goodies/reclaim, tea time, sounds at bedtime

3BT

1. I feel like I’m getting the hang of turning/trimming. One pot, which I thought was a bit wobbly and meh, is transformed by the shaping of a nice foot. 1b. The kiln is unloaded – I didn’t realise how much of my work was in there. The first thrown pot I’ve taken through to […]

3BT – rain, written off, new recipe

3BT

1. The pitter-patter of the rain, the gush of the beck. 2. It feels like it should be a productive day – indoor chores at least since the rain has stopped play outside – but we decide to write it off and watch disaster films instead. 3. John tries a new recipe (for jambalaya) and […]
