October updates...

I was really pleased to receive  a 2nd place at the EWAAC awards last week in London. This was an exhibition and awards for UK and Japanese artists and craftspeople. I submitted  a  copper matte Raku "Jug". (Pictured in an earlier post.) I think it made  a fitting end to my  association with the awards- and trumps my first year "runner up". But, time to move on - although there is talk of some of the artists exhibiting in Kyoto, (the home of Raku pottery) now that would be nice.

Anyway, I haven't had much time to make new work recently, so I hope this week I can find time to restart again. I've got plans to make lots of smaller work, in the vein of the "Menhirs"- which seem to be selling well. Long may it continue is all I can say....

What's on...

Looking ahead- I'm resupplying Haddenham Galleries in Ely later this week . 
 I also got my entry off for the Vasefinder 2014 competition, which is an American juried online exhibition. http://vasefinder.com/vi.2013.home.html
My exhibition at the A2 Gallery in Wells comes to an end next month- (Nov 10th) so get there quick if you want to buy a christmas present!

GQ Magazine India

Just been told that one of my pots is featured in an article in GQ magazine India.
It gets more and more bizarre every day! It took me a while to work out what the mag actually was...stands for Gentlemen's Quarterly I think? Nice.

Meanwhile, production has ground to a halt, whilst I paint and generally clean out the workshed. Paranoid about the hazards of clay dust, I decided for health and safety reasons, it was high time.
Can't wait to get it finished and back to making,






An Indian adventure

Well the dust has settled now and I can tell you about a lovely opportunity  to team up with Mumbai based company, CuroCarte. FoundedbyAnanya Birla, Curocarte aims to source work by artisans from around the world to showcase their talents in an online design/retail website. From what I gather it is mainly aimed at the emerging Indian market and all I can say is that I am "chuffed" with the link up.

I was visited by Pragya Awashthi whocame direct from Mumbai to my studio and workshop. I cannot praise Pragya enough and the founding principles of the company, the website is now live and you can judge for yourself.

I have to keep pinching myself that this actually just happened. Well back to reality, back to the workshed...

New work off to Old Chapel Gallery...

I just spent the weekend parcelling up pots ready for shipping out. Some are off to the Old Chapel Gallery. This is a new venue  for me but it's set in lovely Herefordshire. Now fingers crossed I sell some pots! Some of the pieces sent out are pictured below.
