2018 seems to have flown by with several interesting and successful events, which really help to stimulate the enthusiasm and, hopefully, the creativity.

All my current pots are frost-proof  stoneware,  using a Craft Crank base,  often  with  coloured porcelain slips  providing the  underglaze colours  and  textures.

Several themes from 2018 look set to continue into next year. The range of pastel-toned vessels shown here feels to have further potential.

Another direction I want to follow arose from a visit to York Minster crypt, where the piles of cut stone formed interesting shapes and textures in the carefully lit chambers. I think these pots stand on their own, but I am also keen to test their use as orchid planters.
