Just a quick update.
I've not been able to get in the studio for a few months, as we're in the process of extending our house. The studio has become a temporary storage area, so not pottery production has been possible. I have however bought a wood burning stove that'll hopefully keep me warm once I've freed up the space. We're almost at the stage where i can clear out the studio and get in again - just need the electrician to finish off.
