Hi Folks, Ron here. Sarah and I just returned from a trip from England. While there we visited the Art in Clay Festival at Hatfield House. It was amazing!!! We saw tons of pots and I met some of the best potters in the UK. Above you see some slipware made by Paul Young.
Below is a shot of me and the famous Mary Wondrausch. She is a gem. We definitely had to have a pot of hers!
We made a trip to St. Ives and visited the Leach Pottery. It was amazing to be in the workshop knowing that Bernard and Hamada and so many other great potters had made pots there.
Later on we visited John Leach's Pottery in Somerset. Pottery overload!!! I love John's pots.
Below another image from Art in Clay. There was a lot of ceramic animals and figurative work at the show.
Here's Doug Fitch's stand. Woodfired English Slipware at it's best.
Needless to say I was so inspired. Now back at home I have to get to making some pots. Tons of ideas in my head. I'll have plenty of new work for the Circle Sale coming up on Oct. 3, 2009.
