With many thanks to Viv Lee for sharing these pictures from the Wild Clay weekend at Pishwanton Wood in August. The decidedly damp weather made it something of a challenge to go from digging local clay and making pots to firing them in a bonfire, all in one weekend. But, with the help of an enthusiastic bunch of participants, we muddled through.
Join me for a ‘wild clay’ weekend at Pishwanton Wood near Gifford in East Lothian on 18-19th August. This experiential two-day course will give you an introduction to hand-building pots using locally dug clay and to the
transformational power of fire. For more information and to book your place see here .
It’s that time of year again. This year, my one-weekend-only open studio, pre-Christmas selling exhibition will be on Saturday and Sunday, 2nd/3rd December. My studio at 27 High Street, Dunbar will be open both days from 10am to 4pm.
As well as a new selection of wood fired stoneware and porcelain pots from the anagama kiln, Ralph Curry will once more be selling some of his wonderful green-turned wooden bowls and there will be a selection of limited edition prints by renowned wildlife artists Darren Woodhead and Pascale Rentsch.
