My friend Jon, pictured on the right, lives near where we were holidaying and took me for a trip out to see Mark Titchener, here in the blue shirt.
Jon has a very fine collection of studio pottery, check out his website to see some wonderful pots, click.............. here.
Here are some pictures from Mark's place, a beautiful house and workshop in rural Suffolk.
This is his showroom.
Inside the workshop.
huge jars, glazed and awaiting firing.
Mark has a big downdraught kiln, similar in design to Clive Bowen's - here's the chamber
and this is the chimney, reminiscent of the many ancient windmills that we saw across Suffolk and Norfolk.
I came away with this fabulous jar.
More later, with news from Art in Clay and Ron and Sarah's visit to England.
