Thanks for popping in. If you like ceramics and you live in the South East of England, then this is for you! Tomorrow, there will be a one-day Pottery Pop-up shop just outside Uckfield, at Barnsgate Manor in East Sussex. It’s the Clay studio I attend, where I go to classes. And tomorrow lots of my pottery friends are exhibiting and selling their beautiful work. Oh boy oh boy! Are the visitors in for a treat!
I have been watching my pottery buddies making and preparing their wares for many weeks. Why am I not exhibiting myself? The only thing that has prevented me was Old father Time. I quite simply ran out of time to make enough pieces to justify a table-top. Pottery just takes so long! But what a beautiful thing it is, eh? There will be loads of small, lovely affordable things, as well as a number of real masterpiece show stoppers works of art.
I shall most certainly be attending and helping where I can; I just didn’t feel ready to actually exhibit. And as you know, the decision this year was to travel gently, not to put more pressure on. Also, to be frank, pottery has been my therapy, my escape, my huge distraction. I wasn’t quite ready to turn it into a business venture, not with the amount of pressure at Clarity all year. Next year, I shall start preparing sooner, to give myself enough time and no prep stress. Work got in the way, I’m afraid. It’s fine x
BUT. If you fancy a drive out to Barnsgate Manor, the studio is pretty fantastic, and there will be some formidable work for sale. Wonderful Christmas pressies! It’s right on the A26, between Crowborough and Uckfield.
Here are the details…..
Stay safe. Wear a mask.
