Ceramics class tonight

The ceramics class resumes tonight and there are a few things on the agenda.

Firstly, to assemble the 4 walls of the pink HO scale Boulevard Haussmann building.

The 4 pink walls.

Before the walls were glazed pink.
And, if that's not possible to do tonight or if it only takes a few minutes to do then I'm going to start work on  a ceramic facade of this church in Paris: Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis is a church on rue Saint-Antoine in the Marais quarter of Paris.






Height compared with adjoining 6 storey building.


Apparently it's about 55 metres tall which is taller than the Gare du Nord or Boulevard Haussmann. In HO scale that would be 1/87 of 55m = approx 63 cm.

That's too tall for the other buildings on the layout; it would look out of scale even though it wouldn't be. So, I'll set its height arbitrarily at 40 cm high.

Old cast iron pot from France

Rolled lamb and various root veg
