Having a great break from the wheel at the moment. It’s time to look back over the year to see what happened. Once the season starts it’s like a rollercoaster, always trying to catch up with yourself, so time now for reflection and planning. The next three months are the best, no great pressure apart from production and courses. Time for developing new ideas and glazes.
The pottery year for us has a definite rhythm with each month having it’s different demands, I do like it that way. We have more courses in January and February than ever before and keeping up with production alongside these is going to be a challenge. If they do another series of that pottery show I may have to get staff ! but I don’t think Alice would let me, she’d just put my alarm on earlier.
