The weather was kind to us at Aylesford and it was a good time to make new friends. Michael and Andrew were next to me and kept me entertained for the week-end. They had some beautiful copper red bowls. There were very few people out and about but I managed to do quite well. At first I was horrified at how little work I have left but I have recovered very quickly and got straight back into the studio and onto the wheel!! Pots were drying amazingly fast yesterday as the weather was so warm. It's good to be back into the making cycle.
Aylesford Priory is a very attractive setting for the potter's market. There are numerous ceramic murals and plaques in the buildings and gardens. They are by a Polish artist, Adam Kossowski, who came to this country in 1942 when he was released from a Russian labour camp.
