After taking an O Level in pottery nearly 40 years ago I had not had my hands on clay in many decades. I took a short course and discovered that like riding a bike you don’t forget!
I have had a few sessions on the wheel at Claywirks but lockdown and then work commitments have curtailed my visits dramatically.
Being stuck in Derby I tried my hand at sculpting some simple animal figures and found that I very much enjoy this side too. I have a yearning to own alpacas so this where I started.
I am also experimenting with figures of domestic and indigenous animals.
I will be putting some effort into more work on the wheel and with glazes as soon as we are able to travel more freely again.Sarah Barlow
