Good Afternoon

Had a good afternoon at the Studio today. I did some raku firing after quickly making up a new glaze to test. The new kiln lid held up well, and the glaze came out close to what I was looking for, more experiments to follow…

Open Studios 2014

Fairlands Valley Farmhouse

I am really looking forward to Open Studios tomorrow, with a bit of luck the autumn will hold off for a bit and I can get the raku kiln out and fire a few pieces in the sun.
The Farmhouse Fellows have been busy preparing the house, garden and their studios. Paintings and drawings have been hung, tapestries weaved and pots fired. Come and have a cup of tea and a chat with some great artists.

Open Studios at the Farmhouse will be on the 30th/31st August and 6th/7th September 2014 between 11am and 4pm.

ps. there will be cake…..
