Workshop Tour


A display of sedum planted knee pots and pinch pots made by
 my three children.

This area I try to keep clear and free from clay & glaze so that books and finished pieces can be kept clean. The window was boarded up but I missed the light and now have some make-shift blinds I made from old curtain linings.

Main work area where I prepare clay, make and dry out my stuff.
The most used things are kept on a long shelf below the window
so everything I want is in reach.

mmm sweet, I think not; they are cuddled up this way when they are not
on village killing sprees or bringing it all back home.

My 11kw front loading kiln, re-conditioned a few years ago
with new elements, bricks ect.. At first I was really daunted by
using such a large piece of equiptment but now it feels really normal.
Currently, I fire this kiln approximatly 4/5 times a year as it takes so long
to make all the work and fill it to its full capacity.

 "Needless to say I never quite feel I have enough time to be in here amongst juggling school runs and childrens activities,chores and numerous other places I need to be, but somehow I suppose it makes it a bit special and I do feel lucky to spend time doing the things I enjoy. It is here that I can dissapear from the world and just enjoy the process of clay."

  2. Jealous, moi!?
    I have everything I need but the dedicated space and time.
    Oh and the direction.
    I love clay but my focus is hazy at the moment. I guess a 2yr old and a 4yr old does that.
    School after the summer for my eldest, playgroup for my youngest.
