I have been looking at teapots, drawing teapots, using teapots and finally today I attempted to make a teapot! It’s a bit on the small side, like most things I make but I am pretty pleased with my first attempt!!

Clay Connections

I attended the preview night for Clay Connections at the Willow Art Gallery in Oswestry last night. What a beautiful town and lovely gallery space. I had a great evening, not just for the artwork which was truly fabulous but the owner, furniture maker Peter Vidal showed us around his amazing workshop and took the artists out for dinner! A first for me! Sitting around the table were potters; Margaret and David Frith, Jacqui Atkin, Wendy Lawrence, Sue Crossfield, Gordon Cooke, Brigitte Soltau, Karin Hessenburg, Nicholas Marsh and me!! I had to pinch myself!! Sorry it’s probably not cool to be star struck, but I am!! You can tell by all the!!!!!

This lovely exhibition is on until 5th November. Other artists exhibiting in the show are David Binns and Annie Tortora.
