Pottery

 I had planned to go to the cinema today for a retry at watching The Last Duel 
I was pissed off because no where is now showing it.
I returned to the pottery studio instead.
It was my first time back and it will be nice to get to plan and construct my ceramic chess set again.

I bought this vase / bowl too.
I liked it’s robust proportions

  1. I wouldn't worry too much about the Last Duel. I would aim for Dune now if I were you. A week in cinema is a long time! I don't what excited me about the Last Duel that day but now it sort of pales into insignificance! I love the bowl.

    Lovely bowl! Might you aspire to making bowls, mugs, and such when the chess set is finished?
    I really liked the first Dune movie so wonder how the new one compares.
    Happy Monday!

    Hugs!

  4. Oooh, I love that bowl. What are you going to use it for, or is it just to sit there, looking gorgeous? Did you ever watch the Great Pottery Throwdown? I loved it, and Keith Brymer Jones getting emotional. xx

  8. Depending on the size of that beautiful bowl, it would be perfect for an assortment of fresh fruit!

  10. Beautiful vase/bowl. I've a (very) small collection of handmade pottery, as well as a few wood carved vases. They add warmth to a home I think. --Elise

  13. The vase (vessel?) is beautiful. Have fun creating your chess set! Maybe you'll take a woodworking class and make the chessboard, too.

  15. I love the bowl and it looks so versatile too. I'm looking forward to hearing about the chess set you will make. When you make your own set the possibilities are endless!
