There's something heartwarming about Hannah decorating a pot whilst feeding a babe.

If you read Doug's Diary you'll know this is one busy pottery family. Hannah says it's a juggling act and she's not kidding... 

The thing is, neither #babies nor #pots like being dropped!

Epic fail, all three cracked. Next time I make them, I'll fire them on wads

A view of the workshop this evening. The three big jugs have just been slipped. I've another nine to handle and decorate, so a busy weekend ahead. The best will be for the Slipped exhibition @CeramicsCentre , London

Tonight's job, putting handles on some tall tapered jugs that I threw this morning. The inspiration for these is a fine medieval jug that was made at Mill Green in Essex. Sadly, mine is not a patch on the original, damn those medieval potters!

Back on the big jugs. The current batch of pots is for an exhibition entitled Slipped, with @dylbowen1 and Nigel Lambert at the CPA @CeramicsCentre in London next month

That's Earth and Fire over for another year. It was great fun, thank you to everyone who stopped to chat and buy pots. It's always terrifying putting one's pots out, particularly when looking up to see the likes of Svend Bayer exhibiting opposite. Big thanks to Sue the organiser

All set up at Earth and Fire. The little ones spend a lot of their childhood sitting in banana boxes. I hate setting up, it fills me with anxiety. I hide in a shed, miles from civilization for good reason. No doubt I'll feel better after day one. I'll let you know

On our way to Earth and Fire with a full load of pots and babies (pots in boxes, not babies)

More beautiful work from my sweet wife @hannahmcandrew who, in spite of the agony of two abscesses in her mouth, has constructed and decorated these flower bricks today, as well as tend to two babies. She's an amazing woman.

Just finished for the night, we're working crazy long days at the moment. I thought I'd try the pellets on a bigger jug, I reckon it'll work a treat if I can get it through successfully, big pots are tricky at every stage
