Open tonight and this weekend for the final few days of the @amberleyartisans #tendaysofchristmas exhibition and sale.

Hope to see you all there. #theclayloft @susiehetheringtontextiles @nickischmiegelow @sarahhardaker @soapfolk @alisonvickeryartist @1280ceramics @galinagardiner1 @daisy.murdoch @hannah_linfoot_art #craft #pottery
This pic seems somehow appropriate today. Ranks of freshly turned small salt bowls with their heads bowed. 
Have a wonderful week everyone. #turning #stoneware #workshop #studio #theclayloft #bowls #tankards
A bright picture for a gloomy day. #glazing pots is a task I have learnt to love. This is a tin white over an iron rich slip.

What a lovely weekend at #madebyhandcardiff, many of these pots have found new homes. So lovely to be surrounded by so many lovely #craftmakers and #artists.
Some cups made this week with their turned feet. I enjoy the turning process immensely and somehow find the control a turned footprint such a compliment to the fluidity of a thrown form. I am learning that there are feet for pots and pots for feet...

This little cup came out of the kiln today. Very happy with this #tenmoku glaze. Fired in gas reduction to 1300c. A very traditional glaze and not universally loved but I seem to be drawn to it. I love the breaking to brown... #glazefiring #theclayloft #stoneware #pottery #cups
Two piece jar made today with an experimental slip decoration. #tryingsomthingnew
I made a few plates tonight for a slipware masterclass with @paul.young.3979 tomorrow @theclayloft. The kiln is on so hope these will stiffen up enough to practise!! #plates #stoneware #pottery #theclayloft
#kilnpacking tonight, #glazefiring tomorrow. 
I fire in a small ten cubic foot gas kiln that I built a year and a half ago. This will be firing number 28. The benefit of a smaller kiln is you can fire often and learn lots. Of course a bigger kiln would be good too..... #theclayloft #stoneware #pottery #woodashglazes #pots #kiln
A few freshly turned and slipped bowls glistening in the autumn sun. This is #porcelain slip that will wear a beautiful green crazing wood ash glaze when it’s finished. 
I find this porcelain slip gives a lovely warm translucent finish to the pots.

Two very different types of pots. Some little coffee cups and some #elephantskin drinking bowls. #theclayloft
