Heading into the unknown life as a potter in 2016.
Yesterday I spent 2 hours putting a blog together that was a look back over 2015.
Then I sat and read it before pushing what I thought

Life is short, and there just isn't enough time to make all the pots I want to,
plain simple ones like this Pancheon give me the most pleasure.
A quick look back over some old pictures and I unearthed this one
taken in 2014.
I am so lucky to be on the same stage as these fantastic potters
they spur me on to be the best ambassador for pottery I can be,
a very proud moment in my pottery life.
The workshop in early June looked like it could have been in Greece.
apart from the fact that those are Apple trees not Olive.
My Demonstration at Art in Clay
proved to be a personal and business turning point,
I came away from the 3 day show on such a high.
Then of course was brought straight back down again!
But as ever my pottery friends gave me advice and
my non pottery friends gave me a beer.
So Thank you to all of my followers
have a great 2016
What Ever it throws at you.
if you see somebody without a smile
