HELENA  got throwing porcelain to- day.

“A bit of sorting out the studio first and then kneading up Audrey Blackman porcelain clay I threw

four ( 1lb.) pots plus lids and spouts. They will have to dry out a bit (leather hard) before I join them up.

Nothing is measured except the inside diameter of the lid gallery. Special care is taken to

make the lid a small bit smaller so that it will fit snug, but not too tight.

When finished if the lid is drawn back to one side it should still be resting on the gallery rim.

David Leach thought me how to make a good (non drip) teapot.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers
