Looking ahead to spring: the Dacorum and Chiltern Potters Guild annual Open Day is on Saturday 13th March 2021 Guest speakers demonstrating with clay include Sasha Wardell - Working with Moulds and Thomas Bohle - demonstrating Double walled Throwing. The session "On being Centred'' is a conversation between
Vasu Reddy, Ester Beck and Vidya Thirunarayan and looks to be a really captivating and thought provoking talk.
The Guild event is always a highlight on my calendar and is popular with pottery guild members and ceramic enthusiasts. I encourage you to take a look /pass on the poster below.
- Tickets are now available on Eventbrite. This year it will be an online event-

In support of the Clay College at Stoke I've added one of my smaller boat sculptures, to the facebook auction @pottersforclaycollege Today Monday 10th April 2017 at 3.00pm is the deadline for all bids. It would be fantastic to see a pottery college in stoke situated alongside the bottle kilns. As a student from Harrow (university of Westminster) we got to visit Stoke and the potteries at Spode, Wedgwood and more on a memorable trip as part of our ceramics education, the place, the potteries and the skill of the workers was truly inspiring. With the prospect of only three BA ceramics courses currently on offer this endeavour is a positive focus for ensuring the future of craft education.

The first few months of the year seem to be the best for reassessing and planning the year ahead. So for 2016 I’ve been learning all about the online world by taking part in an Etsy resolution programme. It has been enlightening thanks to the involvement of the Design trust and some lovely fellow makers. It’s going to take a while to digest the things I’ve learnt and let it filter through to the different aspects of my work. My fine art ceramics, photography and Art Pottery Workshops.
During the process I set up an online shop still very much a work in progress www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ChalkBluePottery This an offshoot of my community based pottery workshops. Examples for various projects/pop up markets and gifts for friends has built up over time and for the purpose of the Etsy programme I put them all together to create a small online business selling personalised ceramics. It’s a separate business from my fine art work as an artist, a way to supplement my income doing what I like doing making ceramics.
