Hey folks!

I’m finally feeling settled back in Madrid after my short visit to Melbourne. This week in class we have be getting back into a bit of throwing—so as to not loose the touch! Some of our decorated pieces have been fired and are ready for a final layer of glaze, which we should get done next week!😀 I am finalising a hand built piece and refining surface designs for another lidded vessel. It is all happening!
