What a crazy year so far! It s been SO busy here!

An abundance of people have been in touch to come and try pottery after the success

of  The Great British Throwdown on BBC2.

We had fun trying Jonnie Vagas’ one minute tea pot

Warwickshire Open Studios came around again quickly!

I had great pleasure in showing off my very own Recycled Bone necklace made by Lindsey Archer.

That’s her beautiful Boro stitch painting in the back ground!

This woman can take anything and make it beautiful again, see here!

Rhian Malin & Lindsey discovered they were a home decor match made in heaven : )

I made a come back with Wigwam Ceramics‘ joyful new look : )

Wendy Campbell-Briggs kindly joined us again, some lucky visitors

snapped up some of her older pieces at fabulous prices.

We were very proud to be able to use the little garden we have.

Several wonderful souls have contributed to make it the gorgeous tranquil space it has become ….

One of the most thrilling things for me was visiting students past & present who have set up at home or elsewhere… I am so proud!  Several have taken advantage of my Geeks One workshop – ‘How to Set Up at Home‘.

These include, my dearest buddy, Polly-Anna Ceramics.

Nina Bale took time out from her very successful Ginger Print business to give

being a potter a go for a while. Her studio was an inspiration! All done from pallets!

 

And of course there were lots of workshops and plenty of delicious lunches ; )……..

RCA graduate An Gee Chan is a V22 artist and has been spending some time in the ceramics studio.  An Gee’s throwing skills are top notch but she is better known for her murals and screen prints. Sourced from jotted down dreams, nightmares, curious incidents and stories from newspapers and the internet, An Gee Chan’s images have a raw veracity and directness.

You can see An Gee’s work and her beautiful ceramics in Farringdon until the 14th December

It was great to have people from my last studio http://www.artinthepark.co.uk/  We took some inspiration from Picasso as the studio accommodates artists and potters it seemed appropriate. We took our time and had  lovely long chilled out sessions.
