The Great Pottery Throwdown challenge was for the potters to describe their life in pictures on six tiles.
How would show something of yourself in six pictures, words or symbols.

I’ll start
1. A palm tree, to describe my childhood on a tropical island
2. The scales of justice to describe my early career.
3. The moon and stars to symbolise my marriage and family.
4. An easel to show my passion for painting.
5. A big comfy chair to show what a lazy slob I’ve become.
6. An iPhone to symbolise my obsession with Gransnet.

Sums it up kittylester! Beautiful picture. Reminds me of this favourite photo of mine, taken about 15 years ago.

Mainly the same as Kandinsky with bits of 🌞 in between.

Ellianne Wed 24-Feb-21 09:48:30

I thought we needed 6 pictures? Though the family ones speak a million.

Kate and Kadinsky at least you've come out the other side and remember ..........

Love it Blossoming but I hope its you being witty.

I have nothing to offer to this discussion at the moment but a picture of a yawning void and perhaps a big cartoon letters which say OUCH!

Dirty knees and clothes .... a child playing out all day
Books, books and more books constant study and exams
A pony ... my best friend
A dog ....always trying to please its owner
A big heart... my children
An empty room... all the people I have lost
