I don’t know if this will be big enough for you to read, I hope so. Apart from the fact that I’m not open to the public apart from at Spring Fling and that Jason is helping me build a kiln not building it for me, it’s a great piece of publicity, and the picture isn’t too awful either.
This dresser is at Dumfries House
, I’ve just been up there this morning to deliver some more work, they now have a jug of mine on each of the tables in this room . You can see a couple of pieces of Cumnock
ware on the dresser amongst my pots. It’s strange seeing my work outside of the workshop. Those plates on the top, the tree and the daisies, in my workshop look huge, they are as big as I can make plates and look at them, saucers
in that setting. They look good though. Hopefully there’ll
be some better pictures once the place is properly finished, it’s great seeing them in such a setting.
A funny year this year so far, a year full of rejection letters, just got a couple more this week, I could paper my house in them now I think, in amongst that though I have an acceptance for Ceramics in the City
at the Geffrye
Museum again in September which is great because I do enjoy that show and an exhibition coming
up at Cambridge Contemporary Art Gallery
. Applying for shows and exhibitions is a really hard thing. You just keep on doing it and hoping for the best
, this year I thought I had good photographs of some of the best pots I’ve ever made but obviously they aren’t what a lot of the selectors are looking for for their shows this year. Never mind
, I’m nothing if I’m not a stubborn determined person so I’ll just be trying again next year.
