A grand day out

Art, Ceramics, Exhibition, public Art

Today I took my dear friend, the wonderful artist and poet Cat Milne, to Muchelney Pottery for their 50th anniversary celebrations. Here are a few pics of the visit, taken on my tablet so not great resolution.

We both loved this one! A little different to his usual work…

I love the studio – might look cluttered but everything is where it needs to be for the flow.

Afterwards we tried to call in another pottery at Queen Camel, but they were closed. Next time… There will be a next time. I came home with a carrier bag full of damsons, so a pot of jam will be delivered sometime soon.

Queen Camel Pottery. Sadly not open, but a glimpse through the window got me all excited...

And just look at that gate!

I can’t wait to get back into the studio now.
