Somerset Art Weeks 08

Today is the start of Somerset Art Weeks 08
Unfortunately for me I was too late to enter this year as entries had to be completed by January 2008 and at hat point I was not aware that I would have become a full time Potter by then.
Never mind I have now registered and will be in future events.
I have copied a page to give you a flavour of the booklet with over 200 makers listed with open workshops, one nice thing about it this year is that Marion and me can go and have a look at some of them over the next few days.
My workshop will be open so I might pull in a few customers along the way.
While writing this blog I popped upstairs and the view from the bedroom window made me stop and realise just how lucky I am.
so I just thought I would share it with you. Yes that is a blue sky you can see!!


It was sunny most of Friday as well so I fired the Bisc and made some pots.





This is one of the gas burners.

I bought this small Sid Tustin bowl of Ebay earlier this week I feel very proud to own one of Sid's pieces.
