In amongst the shock and sadness of recent days, the world carries on. Today I taught a class at Kilquhanity Children’s Village just near here. A class of students from Kinokuni Children’s Village are there and they wanted some pottery classes.
We worked on tiles with sgraffito and wet slip. It is a joy to watch children work uninhibited with clay. The deftness of marks made with a rubber kidney on some of the pieces was stunning and I imagine harks to the calligraphy.
For myself it is time to get pots selected and packed up ready for Potfest in the Park. Doug and I travel there tomorrow and the show opens on Friday through till Sunday at Hutton in the Forest.I think this is my favourite of all the shows that I do, a lovely setting, not too far from home and wonderful companions. The sun should be set to shine the whole weekend I think so it would be wonderful if you could come along and visit. We hope to see you there.
