Unbelievably we haven’t had snow this deep in Essex for 5 years and I’ve hurt my back so I can’t play in it
Watch this space for snaps of my new and emerging work by talented photographer Aysha Allen…..

Colchester Throwdown students, the class tomorrow wasn’t convenient for some of the members so Colchester Institute has rearranged it for Monday 27th of November usual time 6 till 9 I apologise for the disruption and hope to see you there On a positive note a new class for the new year will be going live…
Enjoying the show as usual lots of pots, potters and wonderful characters pausing, praising, picking up, putting down and……..purchasing (hopefully).
In this video you can see the coil techniques I demonstrated being implemented by an expert. The whole process is here from shaping and paddling to sourcing the clay and prepping it with grog. You even see the firing which may work better in the African climate where thermal shock from English summer rain is…
Had a great time yesterday making with the Thaxted Potters and threw on a leach kick wheel for the first time in years.
