working and roadshow

Andrew got my little kiln working!  Several million brownie points for him then.

I ran a bisque firing through it and kept a close eye on it, but it behaved beautifully.  Andrew seems to have fixed it, so I’m really happy.  Though he did say that it may require some TLC from the kiln makers in the future.

So the run up to the show continues.  I’ve got another set of bisque ready to be fired in the next few days.

Tomorrow Andrew and I are going to the Antiques Roadshow in Liverpool.  We are taking some photographs of Dad and his papers, medals and the Kukri that he was given when he was in Burma and India.  We’d like to know more about his Kukri, and we thought it would be interesting to see the dinner menu that signified the end of the war in Japan, and the large photograph that we have of Dad in Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he was on pilot training.

Both items that are one of a kind.

I am so tempted to take a piece of pottery to get to see one of the pottery experts!  Ray Finch at Winchcombe, perhaps?
