I haven’t said much about the course on Saturday yet, as for the third week running it was fabulous fun and amazing to watch you all turn out work in such different ways. You were all very tolerant of the loose structure of the day and Vince says he thinks it worked. If any of you are reading this and you have a spare moment please can you leave a comment below.
We covered lots of ground from new materials and techniques through to strengthening designs. My main thought is that we needed more time and at some point this will maybe become a 2 day course.
Here are some of the fired pieces – Alison, your piece is a stunner and I haven’t managed to capture that as well as I would have liked. Amelia, we want to be really careful with your pieces so they will be fired on their own later in the week. Fiona, if you are reading this can you email the photo of your Alpacas to us please? We must take you up on your offer and come and meet them some day soon, perhaps when they have babies in the summer. Also can you let Vince have details about your kiln.
Photos in order: Alison, Sophie, Fiona, Jude, Claire (looks tons better in the flesh) and Alison (pendant)
