Next week I am taking a break from the shed to visit my mum... in Spain.  Its a hard life.  Its a good time to do it.  I have made around 40 moon jars in the last month and I feel like I need space to think up some new experiments.  I need more crazy ideas to try in th...

The new smoke fired pieces continue to flow.  I am trying to work out when to stop for now.   I am much more in control of the process than even a few weeks ago.  Nevertheless, I have more questions to answer, so perhaps I go forward to try and answer those, in additio...

Its been a bit of a mad week.   14 moon jars went to new homes, one or two of them before I even had a chance to photograph them.  Sorry about that.  They are flying out of the door!  Bit wierd that.  Anyway, I have been up in the shed throwing new ones to replace the...

 Its remarkable how difficult it is to get hold of sawdust, especially sawdust which is free of MDF and other glued wood.  I had been rationing supplies a bit, which is an issue with all the experiments that are needed.  So when Arch Joinery contacted me out of the blu...

 A few years ago, Jules went to South Georgia.  I couldn't go, but I let him go because I am a very understanding wife... on the basis that he could do research for our future voyages.   South Georgia is one of the great wildernesses left on the planet.  A few cruise s...

Check out this photo .  The big boats in the foreground with 'V' shaped masts are Thames sailing barges.   There are some more pictures under this post.  Thousands of these distinctive sailing boats used to run up and down the East Coast of England and up to London....

 I am an idiot.  Check out this photo.  Slightly left and below centre is a wacking great thumb print left by yours truly.  So basically what might have been a really nice pot, is fundamentally rubbish!  Anyway, its not important because the Thumb Print Pot marks a tur...
