I've been playing about with this cardboard template to work out some ideas for a reliquary. I was quite pleased with it and remembered just in time that I needed to make the templates bigger to allow for shrinkage. I'm calling it 'the birds and the bees'. This is one of the casseroles out of the kiln this week. I am very poor at taking photos of my work and so often things go off and I realise too late that I haven't kept a record of them. Sometimes it's helpful to keep a record to go back to ideas and build on them. So today in the middle of cooking Sunday roast I shot outside into the sunshine to try and record this weeks firing. I only photographed this one though because I had to re-organise my priorities and rescue the lunch!
