In and Out

 Life is so busy at the moment that it appears to be going very fast. I had to think about what I've been doing over the last month as I seem to be going from one thing to another without truly relishing each activity.
We've had another trip to Wales. The landscape there is very lush and green. I suspect that it's owing to the high rain fall. We were fortunate to have some dry weather to get out and do some walking whilst we were there.
We are having plenty of family time as we try to make the most of the time we are all together as family. Next year my daughter and son-in-law will be returning to China.

 The niche above was on a bank in Llandeilo. It's obviously a bee hive with some industrious bees!

 We also took another trip to the British Museum. I am always draw back to these tiles and have to go and visit them every time we go there.
 Back in the studio I am still working away. I generally am to be found in the studio Monday to Friday 10am to 6 pm making my usual wares but recently I have found a diversion making some wassail bowls. As there are no festivals looming in the near future I decided I could afford the time for some fun. Hence the row of handles. The original bowls often had 16 handles but I'm afraid I settled for 12. The bowls would have been filled with cider and handed around when folks went wassailing on 12th night . Check out my pinterest if you want to see some museum pieces. The top one has a sailor and mermaid whilst the bottom one has little red riding hood.

 To finish here are some casseroles that I currently have in stock that I promised I would post.
