awhile between drinks

It's been awhile between drinks but finally i'm back at the wheel and making some progress

I've been throwing off the hump this week - and it's been a revelation. It's fast, flowing and gives a more natural feel to the pots.

And I've been mucking around with some black slip as well, to provide a contrast to the white.

We'll have to see how they work out. These pictures are of raw pots so they'll change quite a bit once they're fired and glazed. Hopefully the black will stand out more and the white will ping. Fingers crossed, but you never know with clay. It has a life of its own!

And the background to the shots... the underpainting for Jems next painting. It's been on the packing and sending table for a few weeks now!!
