Potfest in the Park

Yesterday we closed the studio so we could go visit Potfest in the Park, as we have done every year for the last five.  There is some really amazing work there, and one year (in the distant future) I would love to display there myself.

We got there not long after it opened and people were still deciding what their prices were on certain pieces.

We spent three and a half hours wondering around and picked up a few small pieces, and lots of inspiration.


Bowls Finally photographed

I have been making new bowls, just some general purpose and ice cream/dessert bowls, I made the form so then they would easily stack. They are decorated with the single blue/green cobalt stripe of my work. They are available in the shop right now.
Stack of Ice Cream Bowls

This stack has 3 ice cream and GP bowls to show that they even stack nicely inside each other.

My little boy's Monster, he keeps carrying it round with with him and tells me it is going to eat me. I am planning to do a post on specially on kids and clay and birthday parties.

On another note in September I am planning a trip to the southern tip of the country, finally going to visit St Ives, and the trip will probably end 10th September at the Muchelney Pottery Open Day. There are other potters I would like to visit Paul Jessop, Doug Fitch. I would like to visit Svend Bayer, Nic Collins and Richard Batterham(If he accepts visitors) I know there are plenty more I haven't mentioned are there any potters that are a good visit?
