Potters trail

Post by big ed on September 29th 2013, 2:03 pm

Cornwall held a potters ceramic trail in september , with the public being invited to see behind the scenes so to speak , have a chat , buy a pot if wanted etc . it appears quite successful with about 15 or so potters taking part , If you get the chance to do it next year assuming they do , I'd recommend it if your into studio pottery , we saw a few potters works , Louise Thompson , Tim Lake , Peter Swanson , wonder if it will catch on eslewhere ?

Your lucky , we don't have anything like that around , at least if they do they don't advertise it very well , there's plenty of potters around and it would work well I think .

I'm surprised you don't have them near you Ed? I have been to open studios all the way from North Yorkshire down to Suffolk

Yes your right , I will be doing a bit more of that next year , I enjoyed the recent visits we did , Louise Thompson was very nice and had a good laugh with Peter Swanson about a few potters , it was good to look at their work and give them advice and pointing out where their going wrong .
