Finally embarking on moving myself and my wheel into my kiln room. A traumatic experience. Who would have though creating an internal door would be so difficult! Brickdust is still appearing as if from nowhere some 7 weeks later but I did however discover bits of the floor at Cosseys Yard that I havn't seen for 15 years.
Snuggled up in my new room I have made my old workspace into a teaching area. I have a Shimpo style wheel and plenty of space for hand building. My first class there was last weekend when four students spent the day preparing forms for a subsequent smoke firing workshop in Febuary. More to follow, watch this space!
The really exciting news is that last week I was filmed by the BBC for their Online Magazine. I was fortunate enough to be filmed by the same woman as did the Sheffield scissor makers video from last year. This went viral. Oh heck!
Apparently the 8hrs of filming will be edited down to a four minute film. I thought I was patient, but that deserves a medal. I'm awaiting news of it's release and will let you know when I hear.
Work for my Solo show is coming along a bit slowly at the momment, plenty of orders keep getting in the way, can't complain, lovely to be busy.
I am delighted to be back at Art in Clay in August and I'm on the reserve bench for Rufford, so I may be venturing North.
Plans for later in the year include (hopefully) a return to Japan, this time taking our Cabinet Maker/Wood turner Son with me.
