Well didn't Norwich do well ? Such a Big Weekend in so many ways.

Slightly overshadowed by both the splendours of the BBC Radio 1. Big Weekend at UEA and NCFE winning at Wembley the N&N Opens Studios opened this Saturday. Continuing until 7th June it's a brilliant event, especially with the Tony Birks exhibition on at The Sainsbury Centre a few miles away.

Hot on the heels of my solo show at Yallops Gallery in Norwich in May it was head down and lots of throwing needed to get ready in time. Nice warm Spring weather always helps, although some time was spent dancing in and out of the Workshop with ware boards with an eye to an inclement sky above.

A fairly wet 8hr firing of Freda last week yielded some really nice pieces, maybe the steam helped?

Art in Clay in Hatfield coming up in July and Innovations in Cambridge in October mean more firings this week. #happypotter
