It was lovely to spend some time learning new throwing skills with Avelino Carrasco, great studio and beautiful company.
“Avebury Dance”, was an installation comprising 38 pieces, exhibited and sold at an exhibition at Avebury Manor in the summer 2017.
“Avebury Dance” was inspired by the beautiful and ancient landscape of Avebury, by the strength and vigour in the growth of plants, and by nature’s forms, colours and textures.
The luminous and translucent porcelain pieces emerge in a spiritual dance of endurance and fragility. Filled with water they can provide baths for passing birds or, holding tea lights, they can brighten up the evening.

A few highlight from my residency in Osaka, Japan. It was a great journey and ceramic experience! Megumu Horiuchi, a wonderful master ceramicist, shared many different Japanese techniques with us and showed us the amazing arts and ceramics from Osaka, Kyoto and Shigaraki. I loved Japan!!!!
