My latest piece has just been published in the lovely Coast magazine as part of their Crafts Special and they’ve even been kind enough to make me a featured contributor!
They asked me to trial a day at the Vinegar Hill Pottery in Milford-on-Sea in Hampshire, photographed by Louise Bowditch of BlueCloud Photography. Like many novices I had visions of clay flying across the room, water splashing over my head and pots that were only fit for the cat’s bowl at the end. How wrong I was. Thanks to the expert and kindly tuition of David Rogers I managed to make pots, beakers and plates. There were six of us on the course, some more artistically-inclined than others, but we all found something to enjoy as our wheels whirled and only some of our work was so bad that it went on the reject pile. Fuelled by indecent amounts of cake and a heavenly lunch, there was even time for a stroll to the beach at the end.
