Away Day!

So what would you expect any self respecting potter to do when he decides to take a day off from the workshop ?
If you said, go and look at pots, then you are Correct !

I went and had a look around

The RJ Lloyd Ceramics Collection at the Burton Art Gallery and Museum

In Bideford

What a great collection

I think this plate was my favorite piece..

But look at these.

and these.

Beakers, so simple.

also very nice to see.
and to add to my day Clive Bowen's place is only 10 miles down the road.
This was my first visit here.
Clive was not there but his son Tom showed us around and made us feel very welcome.
I spent most of the time saying "Wow oh Wow".

Inspiration indeed.
Great colours
I loved this plate.
I thought I was going to come away all disillusioned, but I haven't
I've come away all inspired.
So I'm off to the workshop.

What a great day those Winchcombe pots and Clive, of course, is a true master!

Clive's place is quite something isn't it, made my little space feel like a cereal box.

Pottery is the New Yoga?

Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
