before/after

My first brand new piece of equipment. My kilns are pre-used and one has travelled all the way from Stoke to keep me company in HK. The wheel before and after its first throwing session, sooo exciting! It’s nice to have such a level, firm base to work on. Not quite as serious as Michael Cardew but doing my best…”I got the blacksmith and the carpenter to make me a kick wheel, with the active support of my father – that is to say, he paid for it.”
