I am busy decorating jugs this week out in the studio. I've enough thrown and slipped to keep me busy all this week and probably into next. I am also working hard decorating on the home front. It's a tedious business but the house was in need of an extreme spring clean. Sanding paintwork must be one of the most thankless chores but I am encouraging myself by saying that it will all be worthwhile when it's finished. Zoe and Jill at McGill Duncan Gallery will have some of my pots in an exhibition soon. I feel particularly attracted to the lino cuts by Hilke Macintyre.
