Summer at last! and preparations for Potfest in full swing. To see how the work is progressing, go to the ‘Future’

page for some recent pictures. It has proved very hard finding the right colour palette, particularly as they

change so much in the firing, but I think I am close to finding the right range for me. The planters on this page have

just been planted, so should be well established in time for Potfest.

My interest in more ‘paintily’ designs, using coloured porcelain slips over a craft crank or New Drayton stoneware body is now firmly set to continue. I feel this route has much more to offer and am looking forward to building on the start made this year.

Don’t really have more to say, right now. Just aware there is a long way to go and I’m impatient to get moving.
