Lazy "Beep!" Expletive Deleted

I know, it's been a long time. I am still alive...mostly.
To cut a long story short I am remodelling our house this year and, being exceptionally lazy, this is taking longer than it might...
...anyway that's not why I'm posting:
I received a parcel yesterday, opened it up and:



Inside were these wonderful gifts from Cindy at Dirtkicker pottery. Two lovely mugs and a teaspoon rest. All skilfully thrown with lovely attention to detail. I was so chuffed I wanted to share them with you.
You do meet some brilliant and inspirational people on this internet thingy!
You can find out more about Cindy and see what she has for sale through the following links:

Thanks for being patient with me, I hope to get back to throwing later in the year; and a big thank you to all of you who have contacted me wondering where I am.

  2. Pottery clay is cool to work with, and most people enjoy playing around with it. But there are a few facts that you should know about pottery clay, and in this, we’ll discuss some of the 10 must know facts about your pottery clay and some different parts about it.
    By knowing the clay that you’re working with, you’ll be able to build wonderful items, and you’ll be able to as well, with the right clay, work with it in ways that have a means for you to create a good product, and one that will be worth your while.
    You should know that your pottery clay always has a specific type of firing to it. Amazon clay, in particular, will tell you of the firing ranges, but they’re a little different from what you’re used to.
    We know about the earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain being the three different temperature levels, but did you know that there are different levels of firing in terms of temperature that manufacturers use.
    This can affect the different natures of the clay. The bodies and the glazes must mature at the right temperature because if not, the following happens:
    • The glaze won’t stick
    • It will possibly crack and melt the clay
    • If the clay isn’t high firing but the glaze is, it will end up ruining the pot
