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....
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!
