Update.

Over the past few months I have waffled on a bit about a number of different sources from which I have received material to include in my vessels.  This week, I have decided to give you all a rest from waffle and simply update you.

Memories are Made of This. was a blog about the place where we grew up.

The first East Sheen vessel.

The material was given to me by the gas men working in the road outside our family home.  I have begun using it and the results so far are great.  I have only made small so far but will be going large any time soon hopefully in time for Handmade in Kew

 

Meanwhile, given that I cannot stick to anything for too long I decided that for the material brought to me from Ashtead Clay pit A Man Walks into a Studio and . . . I decided that I would change the design a bit and go all cylindrical.  The finished pieces are great and I think there will be more of these too before I arrive in Kew Gardens.

So that’s it for a bit, folks. Next Sunday I leap on a plane and fly west for a few weeks.  Vancouver, look out, I am on my way!  I will blog again in October.  Hope you can bear to get by without me.
