First proper firing

The Hawthbush Clay is not easy to work it has to be said. I discovered that up the road in Lower Dicker there used to be a well known pottery and there is a type of pottery called Dickerware. Who knew. But I can’t yet find out whether the clay they used was local or not. More to find out and research. Meanwhile I have been playing with what I have found so far. As a slip it looks great, one firing fantastic and then far more boring when it’s been glazed… but I hate glaze so no surprise there….all experimentation and I am enjoying the process
