........................................Mr Fitch's first pot on Michael Cardews kickwheel from Wenford Bridge Pottery now in it's new home at Hollyford. It's a nice wheel, if not a little strange it almost forces you to sit with your shoulders back and a straight spine, but what an amazing piece of kit to use. I really only use an electric wheel at home although I do have kickwheel but I mainly make just necks of jugs on it nowadays and i'd forgotten the slower pace you need to adopt to use one.
Blurry Boat Bideford. Had to go and help pack the bottle kiln outside Burton Art Gallery today which we will help to fire on Friday with Philip Leach as part of a community event. I'd been there before but just to a kiln opening and not inside the Gallery, I had a bit of a shock at some of the pots inside, check out the following photos!!!
