My ceramic work draws inspiration from the British coastline and wildlife. I have also been experimenting with alternative firing techniques, and some of this work will also be on display. My newly refurbished pottery studio is located on the family working farm where I live, in the village of Benwick in rural Fenland countryside. I will be exhibiting for the final weekend of Open Studios (7th & 8th July) from home for the very first time (Venue 33 in the directory), and over the two days you will be able to see my work, and watch the pit-firing experiments (weather permitting). I will be joined by Andrea Van Kleef (The Garden Potter) who makes a range of functional ceramics and textiles. Andrea will also demonstrate throwing on the potter’s wheel over the course of the weekend. She is planning to run some pottery classes later this year, so if this is of interest, do come and say hello!
Christine & Brian Withall will also be in residence for the two days, with raku firing demonstrations, and chat! Should you wish to have a go at making a tile for raku firing at mine on the final weekend, there is still time to visit Christine (exhibiting in Peterborough at Venue 18 in the directory) over the weekend of 30th June and 1st July to make your tile. Christine & Brian will then have the tile ready for you to decorate at my pottery studio, and watch your tile being raku fired, on the final weekend.
Refreshments of tea, coffee, cold drinks and yummy homemade cake will also be available. Plenty of outdoor seating should you wish to come for a chat about pottery, relax and watch the “goings on”! If you are interested in pottery classes or workshops, this is the perfect opportunity to come and have a look at the pottery studio, and express your interest.
