First day back at work after the holidays. A gentle edging back into it for me, a bit of tiding up, a couple of parcels packed, a few lists started and this tiny jug sgraffitoed. Dragons are still on my mind for 2011 I’m afraid.
Included in my list of lists is a list of pots to make to send over to America to have with me at the workshops there in April. So me and Doug Fitch will be at Cape Cod courtesy of Hollis Engley the weekend of 9th and 10th, Liberty Town in Fredericksburg courtesy of Dan Finnegan the 16th and 17th and then North Carolina at Cleveland County Arts Council on the 23rd courtesy of Ron Philbeck no less.
So if any of you are thinking of coming, what pots of mine would you like to see there? Let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
There’s a lovely gallery in Castle Douglas which has just opened it’s new website, The McGill Duncan Gallery. In the past you had to visit the gallery to be able to buy, now you can shop to your hearts content from the comfort of your armchair and drool over their beautiful collection of work. The two great ladies there, Jill and Zoe are offering free P&P (probably only UK I would guess) on their “add to cart” items ordered before 5pm GMT an January 6th. They have a couple of my little FLP star gazing jugs left and some of my constellation tea light holders too. They’ve also got a few of Paul Young’s lovely pots still available from the Christmas exhibition.
