Getting busy

As the weather finally starts to warm up, so the shows begin. Two weekends ago was the Ceramics in Charnwood event. 40 Potters and ceramic artists from across the East Midlands showing their work in Loughborough town centre. A great event, with the sun shining and plenty of people coming to see all the varied work on display.

I also recently received and advanced copy of the book that I've been writing for the Bloomsbury 'New Ceramics', series. It's great to see it finally finished and all my thanks go to those potters and Ceramic artists that contributed images and information. It goes on sale July 3rd.

On the publication front, I also had a short article published in The Log Book this month, documenting the building and firing of the new Anagama kiln at Loughborough University School of the Arts.

Now it's time to start sorting out my stand and selecting work for Earth and fire at the end of June, followed by Art in clay two weeks later. I'll also be getting a firing load of wood down to the kiln at Wysing Arts Centre in preparation for a firing in the Autumn at some point. Then it's off to the International Ceramic Research Center, Guldagergaard, Skaelskor, Denmark at the end of August for the 2nd European wood Fire Conference where I'll be talking about wood firing in education. All in all it's shaping up to be a busy and exciting summer. Oh, and I'll also be starting to make new work for the Autumn firing. And breath :-)
