I'll be helping @dylanbowenceramics during earth and fire this year
There are about 140 stalls set up with lovely displays
It's a real pleasure to be here
I've heard of a lot of these potter's but never had an opportunity to see their work in person until now

My batch of oil and vinegar bottles from last week and a look inside one I ripped in half

Winchcombe Pottery... Wow
If any potter's out there are interested in an internship at Winchcombe I would encourage you to contact them I'll definitely be going back to spend more time there, It's a magical place with wonderful people Big thanks to @mattgrimmitt and @joseph.frank.fuller for making a fun, happy environment and encouraging me to push myself
I managed to break many personal barriers while there and made my first 4 pound pitcher

Freshly decorated pound and a half pitcher
Love the look of that wet red slip

Tried making oil & vinegar bottles today
They were a fun challenge
It's surprising how much character such a small pot can have

I arrived at Winchcombe Pottery today
It's amazing to be at such a historic pottery that is still running today
Really inspiring for a young wannabe like myself

I loaded Clive Bowens small kiln today
We'll light it tomorrow for a very short 12 hour firing

Firing Nic Collins tunnel kiln
Currently on day 3 and cone 11 is going down in the front stack

A couple of pieces from my trip to the Barbara Hepworth museum in St. Ives

I went to Clovelly, Bideford, UK today and saw some coastline that is remarkable different from what I grew up next to

Found these two cuties hanging out with Clive's trimmings today
They both "ran" away when they realized I was there
