I am so pleased to have found this wonderful welcoming place to support my need for a creative outlet away from the day job.
Since loitering at lunchtime in the school art room 30 years ago I’ve wanted to return to pottery, to try again to throw pots on a wheel.
My current quest is to make the perfect mug. Big enough for my morning tea, not so heavy you could knock someone out with it, balanced in the hand and beautiful to look at. This may take me several years! In the meantime I’m making bowls for loose change and pots to hold pens.
I’m concentrating on stoneware as I want to make functional pots to eat and drink from. Glazing is a challenge, but one that I’m more than happy to experiment with whilst the excitement of cracking open the kiln door continues.
