This has been an exciting year so far. In March I took part in Ceramic Art London at the Royal College of Art. It was a sell out show.

Later in the year I exhibited at the Stour Gallery and the Porthminster Gallery. This December I will be showing my work at Contemporary Ceramics, London, as part of their Christmas exhibition.

There were two main highlights to 2012. Firstly, I visited Japan, where I made a range of tableware as part of a longer-term project. Secondly, my inclusion in the much admired Domestic Matters exhibition at Contemporary Applied Arts, London.

Peter Ting and Brian Kennedy curated Domestic Matters. It formed part of London Design Festival.

WSP Winter Exhibition 2012

The Garden Gallery at the Farnham Museum will host the West Street Potters Winter Exhibition on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November.

Open from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day, it will showcase a sample of work from the 146 students who attend tutored classes at Farnham Pottery.  The work is representative of both beginners and experienced potters and the majority will be for sale.

West Street Potters have run classes at Wrecclesham for many years, having moved there from their original premises in West Street, Farnham in 1999.   Restoration work is now taking place at the pottery site, hence the move into central Farnham for our exhibition this year.

Come along for an opportunity to see what we do, talk to our potters and buy something unique and individual.  www.weststreetpotters.co.uk
