On Sunday I ventured into the garden for the first time since around the end of October. Despite the best of intentions to protect pots and plants, and plant spring bulbs, mum's death sapped the strength from me to actually motivate myself and get out there. The winter bedding I'd bought died in the porch and I watched through the window as the garden was attacked by winter. These pots were new last year but will need replacing.
Mum was my gardening inspiration and mentor. I hope now I've made it out there my determination will be renewed.
Poop! Fell over carrying this lot to the kiln... one of those lessons I guess; don’t carry a large box full of pots in one go (long story - my studio is no long in the same location as my kiln). This could make #madebyhandcheltenham difficult!

A shelf that's been hanging *anchored to the wall* above my sink for the last 4.5 years suddenly and randomly decided to fall down this morning. Fortunately most of the work destroyed was my own or can easily be replaced. The main loss was a Ron Meyers cup Elmer gave me. :( The other good news is that half the cups in the second image normally live on that shelf, but I took them down last week to use as teaching tools for my class 😳
Aren't we all a bunch of cracked pots
Trying to hold in the water that's leaking
Because we're water pots
Putting out the fire with the soup
Because we're cooking pots
All acting clean as new
But the clay just don't hold the same today
So grandma isn't always right
So rather than make a mess of this kitchen
And put out the light with our façades
We could be flower pots
Make a beautiful Eden out of this shell

😢😢😢 Major kiln disaster! So many explosions, lost 6 huge bowls not to mind all the other collateral damage from getting hit with exploding pot shards! Deva! 😭 A combo of the big stuff not being dry enough and using the bigger hotter kiln. Serves me right for trying to rush stuff through for Christmas, lesson learned the hard way, you can't rush pottery! About half the batch got away unharmed so clinging to the hope that they'll glaze OK! 🙏🙏🙏 #youcantrushpottery#instapottery#ceramics#clay#kilndisaster#brokenpots
Thank you so very much for your kind comments and well wishes for my Mother in law. She's back home today and going to the hospital for more treatment. I do worry about her, as my father in law is not at all domestic...he can't cook, iron etc...my MIL even gets his clothes out for him in the mornings!! 😨 He will have to learn fast, as she's going to need lots of care!! 😨😨 I've neglected IG, but need to catch up with my own domestic chores today. Enjoy the rest of your day xx #sedums#sempervivum#houseleeks#brokenpots#terracottapots#mygarden#gettingolder#doeseverythingforhim
