My main ceramic work draws inspiration from the British coastline and wildlife, and I regularly exhibit at a number of galleries around the UK. I have also been developing new ideas and experimenting with pit firing, and so some of this work will also be on display at Open Studios. My pottery studio is located on the family working farm where I live, in the village of Benwick in the rural Fenland countryside. We will be exhibiting for the final weekend of Open Studios (13th & 14th July) at Venue number TBC in the directory. There will be a range of ceramics and textile work on display, come and look round the studio, and watch the raku and pit-firing experiments (weather permitting). I will be joined by Andrea Van Kleef (www.thegardenpotter.com) who makes a range of functional ceramics and colourful woven textiles. Also exhibiting here for the first time is Debbie Davis (www.debbieonthebrink.com) who will be showing her beautiful individual handbuilt ceramics.
Christine & Brian Withall will also be in residence just for Saturday 13th , with raku firing demonstrations. If you fancy the idea of making a bowl for raku firing at the pottery studio on Saturday 13th, Christine is offering the opportunity (over the first two weekends of Open Studios) to make a small moulded bowl at her Open Studio venue (number TBC) in Peterborough, where she is exhibiting alongside jeweller Kerry Richardson glass artist Carrie Anne Funnell and glass artist Brian Withall. Christine will then have your work bisque fired and ready for you to decorate on the final Saturday of Open Studios (13th July) here at my pottery studio. Once you have decorated your bowl, you can watch it being raku fired by Brian. For more information and cost details, contact Kerry on (TBC) or just turn up (weekends 1 or 2) at their venue in Peterborough!
Refreshments of tea, coffee, cold drinks and yummy homemade cake will also be available. Plenty of outdoor seating should you wish to just come and watch the “goings on”!
