Ceramic Review Masterclass

Back in August last year we got a phone call to ask if we might like to be the featured potters in a forthcoming issue of Ceramic Review. We were thrilled and readily agreed. A photographer and film maker by the name of Layton Thompson duly traveled north of Watford Gap to come and photograph, film and interview us in our Galloway workshop.

MASTERCLASSIt was an intense day, pretty tough on a girl suffering from vile morning sickness and being able to eat only dry biscuits and drink sips of water! Layton was lovely to work with though, he put us both at ease and we are both thrilled by both the feature that has come from it which is in the current issue of Ceramic Review, 278, and the lovely film that he edited from what I felt was my garbled interview, which is on the Ceramic Review website.

If you don’t subscribe to Ceramic Review, and personally I think it is worth every penny with changes that have been made under the current editor, you can buy a copy of this issue or subscribe from the Ceramic Review website. I hope you enjoy the piece if you do get the opportunity to see it.

    Congrats on the Ceramics Review article and film, lovely, so pleased that you are getting such recognition.

    Great too was the Barry Brickell film that you put on your previous post. We enjoyed a visit to Driving Creek Pottery several years ago and did have a brief chat to Barry and he happily answered a few shy questions of mine and showed me the oil drip system for his kiln.

    Hope the morning sickness retreats and you can enjoy breakfast soon! :-)

    PS just watched the documentary film with you and Doug, it is superb and the close ups of Doug and yourself working at slip decoration is most helpful and informative. Interesting seeing the different consistencies of slip and the way each of you make use of it. I also loved Doug’s applied decoration.
