Before the holiday I spent a day at a local school for children with special needs.I was given a great bunch of 16 year olds for the day. The brief I was given was that they had to make containers in the form of animals. The group were a real pleasure to work with and they enjoyed the day working really hard because they had to finish their piece within the day.
I think they have done an excellent job and the resulting pots are very jolly.
I had forgotten that I had three tea pots in my damp cupboard so I still haven't got onto the wheel. I've been decorating the teapots. It's good to be back in the studio though.
Jim Malone - I love listening to potters articulating their motivations for making the work they make. This is a favorite interview/film made by Goldmark Gallery of Jim...
