Gallery round up for September

I thought I'd take stock of some of my pots at the weekend, with a view to pressing on and making some new work in the run up to .......(Christmas)-say it quietly! Summer proved a bit of a revelation sales wise- probably the best certainly since the recession kicked in - so maybe things are turning a corner.

I've been doing all my usual regular supplies of Gallery stuff to  Buckenham Galleries (Southwold) and the Taplin Gallery (Woodbridge). I'm also stocking work at Quirky Art in Denbeighshire, Wales.

These days I get as many enquiries from online galleries as I do from "physical" galleries. The most notable that I sell on are Studio Pottery.co.uk and for me, at any rate- Rippingham Art. It's the way of things I suppose these days. It is sad not to exhibit in a real space for sure and to get to know the owners and proprietors- but there you go. Both Stephen Dee of Studio Pottery and Jan Rippingham though, have been really friendly, helpful and supportive of my work- and you can't ask for more than that.

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...

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,






Raku workshop

I held a Raku workshop for my Pottery class this week. Lots of fun, lots of burning...a bit too much smoke...some horse hair raku...all good fun!

It's a bit crowded at my work studio...so next time we will be holding firings at Brick House Studios in Silver End, Essex. Lots more space to make smoke and fire!

Anyway a great time had by all.
