Oooh it was cold!
But we all enjoyed the Oxford Ceramics Fair where over 60 of the UK’s leading ceramists were showing their work. Some of us chatted with the makers, some just soaked up ideas, some went to the demo/talks and some even had the chance to look in the Pitt Rivers museum.
All in all a very enjoyable day giving us all food for thought and making.
Already looking forward to the next one in London, April 2019
Unfortunately the ‘Clay Feast’ Taster workshop scheduled to take place this week has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
Many apologise to those who were looking forward to it and for any inconvenience. Please pass on the message to anyone that you know who was planning to attend.
The Clay Feast main event is still planned to take place in April 2019.
The gas kiln is made of light weight brick sections. Believed to only have been fired three times by the previous owner.
Includes four 33cm diameter round kiln shelves. The kiln could also been used as a raku kiln if sections were removed.
The Leach wheel was made by Julian Bentick a WSP member when he worked at the RAE in Farnborough.
Gas Kiln £250
Leach Wheel £200
Collection from Farnborough.

The timings for the Farnham Pottery Christmas Fair have changed after some popular discussion.
It will now be from 12noon to 5pm on Saturday 8th December.
At 5pm the fair will morph into a ‘party’ with live music and a chance to circulate, folding around 12pm, when we will all be exhausted!
Hope lots of you can make it!
Farnham Pottery has really fantastic artist, Victoria Brown coming to talk at the pottery this Wednesday, 17th October, 6-8pm.
Victoria is a great personality and works with Felt, she is well known for her rolled hats and wall hangings – further details are available on the Farnham Pottery Website.
The pottery is delighted to be able to attract this caliber of artist, so it would be great to see our pottery community supporting the event.
It’s free (with drinks!) and sure to be inspirational and entertaining…..
Some of Victoria’s fantastic work on display at the pottery. I really love this!
Richard and Geraldine Hogg are avid collectors of Farnham Pottery Wares. They have been in touch to let us know that they have created a new photo website that catalogues some of their collection.
Also interesting to see this picture below of Martin Ings finishing an owl jug at a West Street Potters open day in 2005.
Thanks for sharing. Take a look if you are interested in the wares made at the Farnham Pottery, between 1872 and 2000, when the business was run by the Harris family.
