Very little pottery is being done this week with three boys at home.When the eleven (nearly twelve) year old complained he was bored I decided it was time to get the baking out. When we had finished and done the washing-up it looked quite pretty. You might just be able to make out Doug's little jug there snuggling up to a jug by the Youngs. We weren't long making a pot of tea and sampling the cakes.
... and these are the girls. They really shouldn't be out but they had some how made a bid for freedom. They are outside the door to the studio.
The real things were very difficult to photo as they didn't stay still for one moment. But these I made out of paper clay years ago and they hardly move at all!
