I'm a retired ex IT Trainer and exBikeability Instructor.
One day a week is spent at the local Scout campsite - planting trees, cutting the grass, pruning, picking wild damsons, apples and sloes, writing letters and funding applications begging for money. I teach cycling to children and adults, and spend as much time out-doors as I can.
I have two greenhouses, the larger is half pottery half plants, but the pottery is taking over and trying to grab more space. I "pot" at a day centre for the over 50s one morning a week, and spend odd moments or whole days finishing, fine-tuning, glazing, just pottering at home. I have a small electric kiln, which I only run if I can't get my stuff fired at the centre. I use commercial clays and glazes, and although I inherited a load of raw materials, I gave up on them, and have passed them to a potter half my age, in the hope they will be used.
I've made a number of slip-casting moulds; for mugs - a drop-mould without a handle, and a three-part mould for a complete mug with handle and foot-ring; an owl, a tall, skinny santa and a square vase.
I've given up on the wheel, I I did manage to center and cone, but nothing more.
I've had 200 kiln bricks donated, and there are more if I want them, but am going to pass them on to Anglian Potters or a younger potter!
