  Geez, I wish I had some fence posts!!


I don't use my own fence posts:  the New Forest (140 square miles designated a National Park) just up the road a mile or so has plenty.

I like the thought of putting them out on fence posts, but they all have my name stamped on them.  If they are too awful to sell, I don't want to be remembered by them!  How do I get the name off?

You could use a small angle grinder if it really bothers you, (wear eye and breathing protection).


I've changed my pot bottom sig anyway so anything left out has the old one. :)



ayjay...you're on the right track, have a look at FB page  'Art Abandonment'   there is a US and a UK chapter of this group.....if I can erase my name off the bottom of my so-so pots I think I'll start one of these in Australia



I'll take a look  Irene, thanks.


Nice find with the Cobalt.

I've started to distribute some of my less desirable pieces around the many ponds in the New Forest, critters will no doubt find them useful which pleases me,  (and future archaeologists may be surprised to find whole pots in however many years time).


I also just leave some stuff perched on fenceposts, it's all disappeared so far, I don't overdo it, maybe a couple a month (there's a bit of a backlog)   :)  only one has been found smashed next to the post so far- it was horrible, a refire which got even worse.


I also have a pile in one part of the garden, I can't see it, it's under some bushes, some pieces get flung in there, few survive the journey.


I'm relieved to say that all of my rubbish (over 90% anyway)  dates from at least a couple of years ago, the pile is only growing because I've become more ruthless and realistic looking back through older stuff.

:blink:   ok... it seems I need to clean my studio before I take a pic... all of these are glorious compared to my corner of the basement. 

Come on Rebekah, where's your cojones? :D


It can't be any worse than mine.

i use a fat Sharpie.  do not know the UK brand name.  underglaze, perhaps??  it doesn't stick so your lid will not be stuck down.

Permanent marker is the exact same thing as a Sharpie, I'm amazed that yours doesn't just burn off.


Underglaze is a good idea though, I'll do that tomorrow.
