as a late birthday prezzie and now I am putting it
to good use.
I did a workshop with the gorgeous and
charismatic India Flint a few years ago and I
have so much respect for her work and her way
of living in the world.
I learnt so much in the four days I spent
in her workshop and her two books
ECO COLOUR and SECOND SKIN are a brilliant
addition to the workshop and give me constant joy.
So I went for a walk this morning and found
some wind fall leaves together with a few
tip prunings from the garden and have bundled
up a lovely Merino wool shirt that I bought last
week and it is on a slow cook in the dye pot.
Meanwhile the kiln is cooking a bisque
of large bowls and platters.
I need these for next week and I only
finished the two big bowls a few days ago!
So I nervously put the semi wet pots into a
low slow kiln and cooked them to 100˚ for
about 5 hours and they dried out beautifully.
(not very energy efficient I know but I am
a desperate woman this week!)
So the full bisque is now running and we
will see how they go.
Come back next week to see what comes out
of the oven and the cauldron!
"Hehehehe" she cackled to her self ;)
