Isaac Button Exhibition Blog Two.
I can't tell you how excited I am about being included
in this Exhibition of work by my all time Hero
I had always dream t of working in an old barn
Making Simple Country Pottery.
And here I am
Being a part of an exhibition along with some of the big names
in studio pottery.
John Foley who owns the Imagine Gallery called in last Sunday
to collect some of the pots for the exhibition.
He gave us a few of these Private view invitations.
It was a thrill to see my name among this list.
I was going to say I hope my pots don't let the show down,
But in fact I am very happy with the pots John Took with him.
I Love this picture of Isaac slipping a large Pancheon.
and I found I had this picture on my computer
when you consider that each of these pans takes around
9 - 10lbs of clay
That's one heavy board he's carrying !
Here are some of my Pancheons
They sell well and yet they are so simple.
People seem to like them in all shapes & and sizes, which is good
because I make them in all shapes and sizes!
It's what I like
Simple Honest Pottery
Dribbs and all!
The Exhibition runs from 1st July
and is at the Imagine Gallery Long Melford
Suffolk. CO10 9JQ
