This is on in conjunction with the Big Smoke Convention and is really worth visiting!
Graeme Storm has a room of superb pieces all done in his masterly perfect way .... the colours made my heart race!
Peter Hawkesby has some very quirky work that I don't really understand, but there were some vessels that appealed to me.
Denis O'Connor's room of work was absolutely amazing!!!! I felt so priviledged to be able to see so much work by such a very clever, creative potter!! His bottles were pure magic and his lidded ..... vessels were made with such freedom and joy it made my heart sing!! There was a lot of salt glazed ware and some very colourful ware too. His sculptural pieces are brilliant! An old Leach type wheel of his was in the room .... I had to sit on it .... it was very comfy - though the workings have rusted together now. He is now at the top of my wish list ..... just one piece bounce
