Today's work; twenty soup bowls and a couple of pickling jars,which I have never made before. They have a water-seal closure [the lid sits in a water-filled channel on the rim],a base plate to sit in [in case of dribbles] and a clay weight to keep the pickling vegetables beneath their brine. I shall cut the weights in half so they will pass through the rather narrowed neck. A good friend asked me to make one,and I'm sure you all know that golden rule of pottery-making - if you want one,make two.
