The opening of the studios and gallery for Powys Arts Month was a great success and certainly worth repeating. I then set to preparing a couple of kiln loads for Christmas shows. A couple of kiln loads they remain, as a combination of factors, mostly unrelated to pottery, restricted the time available for firing. Making the best of things, I have used the mild weather to work outside on a new building (surely more than a mere shed!) for storing the stuff I have to rehouse when I build the wood kiln. I have been able to muster enough pots for two group shows in Brecon and Ludlow. I will also be taking seconds and some older pots to the Mediaeval Market in Ludlow this Sunday (27th November). It has to be done in costume, though I intend to slip some sort of thermal underwear beneath the tights this time.
