Jug of the Month - August

Gordon Whittle was my ceramics teacher at Trowbridge College when I did an evening class there. I was Acting Head at my school and that evening class kept me sane(ish). I'd turn up on a Tuesday and make for a few hours. Leave work on a shelf to be fired. Dip it in a bucket of glaze marked 'blue' and leave it on the shelf again. Then heave the heavy thing home. Mum had a stash of cork circles to stick on the bottom of the things I gave her to protect her woodwork. Wise.
