Well, as promised here are some photos from the Bideford firing courtesy of Blogger Matt.
The pancheon is one of mine, the casserole and jar are Philip's. He had some very fine pots out of the kiln.
Some more - Matt's jugs in the foreground.
This is Kathy Niblett, author of many pottery books, who used to be the curator at the Potteries Museum in Stoke on Trent and is now editor ot the CPA newsletter. She's always been a tremendous support of our firing events. In her hand is one of my jugs which is now in her collection.
On our way back from Bideford, we dropped off some kiln shelves that had been loaned by Clive Bowen. This is Clive's kiln. I've spent many an hour stoking this beautiful, huge two chambered structure over the last twenty years.
And here is Clive's showroom - he's an amazing potter who, as you can probably see, has had a massive influence on my work.
Well that's it for now. Tomorrow we're off to visit my parents for a few days, before returning to Devon on New Year's Eve.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday all, take care, have fun, keep warm or if you're Ang, keep cool.
