A trip to Plymouth

I went to Plymouth today to deliver my pots to Plymouth Art Gallery and Museum. Here they are displayed in one of the new cabinets that the Museum have recently installed.



Different Dave came with me and was really helpful when it came to arranging the pots.

We were lucky enough to be given a tour of the Museum(which is closed to the public on a Monday). This included a chance to handle some of the beautiful, ancient pots held in the reserve collection. Many thanks to Alison for giving us that opportunity, it was an unexpected treat.

Back to making tomorrow for an exhibition in Exeter later in the month. I'll get some pics up of work in progress if I get time after panto rehearsal.

That's it for now, cheers all.

Panto rehersal! Where did that one get slipped in from? Are you one of the ugly sisters or Buttons?

Lovely selection of your pots. It must be a really special moment for you to see your work displayed like that. Are the pots now part of the museum permanent collection?? Congratulations!
