The result of John's day in the studio.

Had a wonderful day in the studio with John. His day was a present from his wife, who kindly sent the picture of the finished piece. We created a large heron, with body made from an aircraft oxygen bottle - saved from John's days as an aircraft engineer.

Frailloop on show at Rufford Craft Gallery

(with support from some other talented folk). Runs from the 1st April to 7th May. Prices start at under £10, although I do have a very nice dog in the show that is just a bit more than that...

Chicken inna bucket!

Just in case you were wondering why I cut a bucket in half... Garry Jones has created a chicken to go into the half bucket. At the moment the piece is drying out before firing. Now I was thinking - can I cut a watering can in half, or a mop bucket? Just need to find one in a skip somewhere.

All work and no play...

Had a day off. First plan was to take a walk along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, but it was raining and we didn't fancy getting soaked in the morning. So we took a drive up to Malham Cove. This is the view looking across the cove. We got back to the village and found a nice little cafe. The heavens opened - rain and hail. Drifts of hail on the cars and water pouring of the carpark. Lots of rainbows around today! Lots of pots of gold?
