Kilns, new designs and exhibition news.
So much has been going on!
- Northern Kilns delivered my awesome gas kiln, she's a beaut (see below for photos!) www.northernkilns.com
- Exhibition of work at Plas Glyn Y Weddw in Llanbedrog www.oriel.org.uk
- 'Pop Up Pottery' @ Bendigedig in Barmouth
- AND Helfa Gelf starts in September www.helfagelf.co.uk
It has been a very busy year so far..... with much more excitement to follow. Looking forward to this next month (September) I will be opening my workshop doors to the wonderful Helfa Gelf public. For the last two weekends in September I will be opening my workshop so that you can come and watch me make pots, have a chat and perhaps buy some pots (although that is not compulsory!)
At the end of the year I will be taking part in an exhibition with Remy Dean in the lovely Oriel Maenofferen in Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Pop up Pottery @ Bendigedig will be inviting 'grown ups' and kids to sign up for short courses in ceramics... info to follow! (Please get in touch via email if you are interested)
I have been working in a black clay from Valentines Clay for the past year. I have been making some sculptural forms, pachyderms, flower pots, bowls and storage jars. Using lots of different tools I have impressed patterns into the surface of my storage jars to create lots of different inlayed detail. After first firing I have been applying a white zircon glaze.
(These pots are for sale at Plas Glyn Y Weddw, Llanbedgrog)
