Over the summer I have been working on a commission. It has been both challenging and a great joy to do.

I was asked to look at meadows, which are really the essence of a British summer. They take in the huge skies, billowing clouds, waving grasses and rolling contours. There are also incredible numbers of creatures and plants that live under foot. On walks I found ramshackle beehives hiding on the edges and under trees. There were so many shapes and variety of grasses and creeping layers of undergrowth, clovers, plantain and vetch. I was ambitious and tried to make space for all of these things. Mostly searching for that feeling of a glowing end of summer warmth just on the turn. Hopefully it has been successful.

I am teaching new adult leisure classes in ceramics. Pottery for beginners and improves, at Joseph Wright college in Derby. The class runs on Thursday evenings from 6.00 - 8.00 pm. Contact the college for enrolment if you want to join in. It is fun class with no assessments or pressure, just time to play with clay.
