New Website

It's arrived!!!!!!!!!! Our new website has gone live and we are sooooooooo proud of it. It's very exciting. My brother Pat built it for us, and he has done such a good job. It now means that we can 'show off' to more people.

We did some raku this morning, in the rain, but we got some beautiful pieces out. I will post photos of them when I have taken them. Even in the rain I find Raku exciting, there's nothing like pulling a glossy, hot piece of ceramic from the kiln and burying it in sawdust. Well actually there is, the next stage of taking it from the sawdust and dowsing it in water is just as exciting.

Am I sad or what????????????????

Busy day at uni today, but not much to show for it really. I seemed to be bumbling about all day and all I achieved was making two 2x2 feet boards to hang on the wall. These boards will hold the tiles I am making for the degree show. My final image will be 12 feet long by 2 feet high and made entirely from raku fired 6x6 inch tiles.

I have a bad eye today, I think it's a sty or something. Very itchy and very sore, Chris made me go to the pharmacy and get some drops to put in. I must admit they have made it feel a bit better.

Hi there
It is funny that when it comes to writing something, everything goes blank. Anyway, last day before back to uni for the last semester, very scary. Lots to do today, not least trying to get images of our work sorted so we can get our website really rolling.

Well here we are then, a blog at last. It's funny isn't it how you think you have lots to say, but then when it comes down to it you can't think of anything. Mind you it is 11.18pm and I'm getting tired now after setting this lot up. Bed methinks!
