An early piece turns up at auction...

I first started making pots in the mid 90's- through college and then University. I wouldn't say I had the greatest pot making talent quite honestly, but what I lacked in skill- I felt I have always made up for in terms of originality and being slightly "off beat"! Through time I think the skill part develops- if you have the luxury of time that is.

Anyway I saw an early Ceramic piece of mine- a form which I can barely remember having made- but which must have sold at some gallery exhibition which I've forgotten about.Its clearly a transition piece- still fairly crude- with a bronze sort of raku glaze and an oxidised spot.

Still, this humble little piece has now  turned up with a starting bid of £85! So if you want a rare early work- you know where to look!:)

Making new pots 1

I'm busy in a making phase,
there's lots in the pipeline, but my main
focus is to get a decent body of work together. It's not always easy when the temperature in the work shop drops below zero! So it's been hard going, stopping the clay from freezing completely! it's toasty when the kiln's on mind you...

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.

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...
