From the first programme Ryan was my favourite :tu: Apart from the Russian doll challenge, his makes were inventive and showed his abilities well. I will have to catch up with the last few minutes as I made a swift exodus to my bed to watch Prime Suspect 1973... :lol:

I thought from the start that Ryan would win. Not surprised at all. Although personally I found his pieces generally rather boring! (nicely made, though!)

Why didn't I think to look in here for a thread!

I've been LOVING the entire series and feel so sad it was over so fast.

Controversially I think the right person was ejected every single week, even in the weeks where there was no one / two people. Now, those people were not always the ones I'd personally rather have seen gone, but that was based on personal taste to their styles of work, my reaction to their personalities and their performance in previous weeks rather than just the single show itself. So, there were a few weeks where I wished a different person was chosen to be ejected but actually I did think the judges chose fairly and correctly every single week based on the main challenge and the two smaller challenges.

We had some strong words about the firing too - blaming it on the weather (rather than properly ventilating) annoyed me and several in my pottery class - and the whole thing about not leaving enough time for items to dry thoroughly all the way through. That said, they all knew the drying and firing schedule and should have deliberately made thinner bottoms / walls to accommodate that better given that was the schedule they were all aware of. Plus a few issues where they didn't remove their items from the boards, and that caused cracking as they shrunk.

Anyway, yeah, loved the entire series.

Oh and while it was one, Nam did an instagram giveaway of one of his wonderful lego men and I won it, so I got to go and visit him to collect it. Swoon at Nam and swoon at my prize!

any chance of an ordinary photo? - my computer doesn't open instagram posts and i tend to avoid 'social media' (both on laptop and phone - i waste enough of my diminishing time as it is).
i'll swap you a pic of a pot i won at a ceramics meeting a couple of weeks ago.

Scullion, I only have it uploaded anywhere into instagram, don't have any quick way to find the share on twitter to link to.
You don't need to be registered with instagram to open it, so I've not come across any computer that wouldn't open instagram link if it opens other websites?

I'd still love to see your photo of your pot though!

Yup, me too... I just clicked on the link and it opened ... however, I think Scully may be using an Ipad ? I notice it's not easy to quote from her posts on here either, and when she quotes, it doesn't look the same either :?

hiya, nearly right, i'm on a macbook pro. there are some sites that are linked to on here that it doesn't open. it may be because i have my security turned up to eleven or maybe because i haven't upgraded to sierra - yet, (mavericks has always worked for me so it's been better the devil you know but i think the time to update has come).
and you're right, since the last 'unable to open website' on this site a while back i've been unable to quote properly unless i click the quote button before i've logged in, otherwise i have to copy and paste the bit i want to quote. none of that line of buttons work, not just the quote.
i'll get round to taking a photo soon, kavey, but not today, i'm off out in half an hour and i'd have to take the pot from behind the telly and dust off the fly ash!
- can you not email the photo to yourself from instagram? (i wouldn't know - just wondering).

i've just had a look at the sort of thing by googling - did you get one with the crystalline glaze?

No it's a blue glaze, and instead of the usual lego arms it has these awesome muscly arms. The photo is of me and Nam and the legoman I won!

if last year is anything to go by there will be a selection of the entrants at bovey tracy, in june, so i may see some there.
i bought a mug from the tall guy (jim) who was one of the finalists last year. the chap who won, matt, wasn't there the day we went as he had had a total kiln failure with the ware he was going to bring so was cycling down.
new kiln, first time of using and with his whole output for the festival - what was he thinking‽ - jim laughed as he said it.

My New Years resolution for myself is that I’m taking my niece to the local 6th form college open day thing in February, this is so I can sign up for a pottery course starting in September. (I hope that she finds the right course for her too).

good for you, there are plenty of vids on you tube (and a pack of clay isn't that expensive) if you want to get your hand in earlier.

Really enjoying this series. Love how emotional Keith gets. The chess sets were beautiful, some more user friendly than others.

Raku next, my favourite week.

Spent the best part of the afternoon catching up with the first 3 episodes :tu: Loved the last one - I did a bit of Raku firing many years ago when I did an evening class in pottery. I loved the other Japanese pottery style - really got me fired up (pun intended) to find somewhere to have a go at that ;) :bounce: Wonderful. Mel Sykes is great as the presenter too

Missed the first episode but caught the next two. I thought a couple of the chess sets were amazing.

i was rather surprised with last night's episode.
it was interesting to see that almost none of them had slip cast before but it was a little unfair to give them differing thicknesses of slip, too.
the woman who made the lovely raku penguins last week and missed the bullet this week was given sludge not slip!
if the slip is made correctly the casting time is predictable and multiple pourings can be made before the plaster mould becomes too waterlogged.
they didn't make it easy for them - built in failure!

most of the pottery we do at the farm is slip casting - it's one of the (easier) things that the guys can feel that they have achieved something recognisable with!
(although the glazing can be somewhat alternative!).
