 I am starting to finish or collect finished pieces from college.  Everything needs to be back at the house because the Dulwich Festival starts in 10 days.   I took the opportunity to photograph some of the finished pieces, so check out the galleries for the latest ima...

Back on the subject of encounters at sea, I wanted to introduce you to the great Wandering Albatross.   Jules took the first picture when he visited South Georgia a few years back.  I saw them too in 2004 when I crossed the Southern Ocean from South America to New Zea...

 Here is my "get back on the horse" pot.  


Yes, you guessed it:  the glaze firing of last week was a mixed bag.  The original of these pots had a very bad case of "crawl" where the glaze pools in globules and leaves areas bare. Its not a good look and it means one...

 Yesterday's shed day comprised another failed pit fire (GAHHHHHHHHHHHHH) and these fellas.  I am showing them to you in motion.  They make me smile as they dance together in the sunset.  Its bad to imbue them with human characteristics, like we do with animals, but t...

This is a picture of my husband.  Craggy (sorry Jules) and covered in paint, which is just how I love him.  He is the silent partner in jceramics - barely perceptible to the outside world - but vital nonetheless.   The things he contributes cannot be measured in money...

 I have three week's to go to the Dulwich Festival and to be honest, I have been having a panic!   The pit firing is behind schedule and the latest glaze has been a bit problematic but I am trying to let it grow on me.  There is not much I can do now, so the perfection...

Its amazing the lows an antisocial potter will stoop to when seeking publicity for an upcoming exhibition.... Houzz has just featured the shed as its "Room of the Week".  I know.  Amazing... There is a link to the article on the "About me" page of the site.

 Morley College has its students' exhibition on at the moment.  The parsnips made it into the window.   You get so familiar with your work, seeing them in such a new context felt like seeing them afresh.  It was a bit of a thrill if I am honest.  But then I did a pit f...

Yes, its fair to say that my hands are weathered.  They have been dried by the sun and wind and by clay and by gardening and sailing without gloves.  They are not beautiful hands but they are strong and practical , which is why I like them.  They are who I am.  If I wa...

I've been struggling a bit to improve the "parsnip" shapes.  Yesterday, I think we made a minor breakthrough.   The new shape has a more tapered foot and neck.  It elongates the shape, making it less muscular and a bit more refined.   It always amazes me how all these...
