A new commission

Relaxing after a busy at at HIVE. I've been asked to make several chalice and pattern sets for Christ Church, Windhill. I'm a bit stiff after working at the wheel for the day and debating whether to have a hot bath first, or a cold beer. 

Work in progress - some patterns (saucers) towards the front and component parts for the chalices at the back.  The chalices are made in two parts, bowl and foot which are then joined together. Meanwhile I have made some sample glazes which are being fired on test tiles,  I have to be patient as they will not be out of the kiln until early next week when I will select which glaze to use.
