My continental-style kick wheel is a great working platform and just now it is covered with newly-turned thrown bowls and pinched light holders in the making. I put the pinch pots outside in the sun to stiffen a little in between pinching, and turn them round every now and then so they keep even. I finished translating the text about Anne Kjærsgaard last night, and then made a start on the presentation I will be taking to NCECA in 10 days. As an "International" participant I have the chance to give a 15 minute presentation - this is a unique and special opportunity. I want to present my on-going work with pinchpots and discuss the small intimate scale I work within.
