I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned my passion for ceramics here, life is too short to go through my old posts, so there it is, I love fired mud! I had a studio in Baltimore Maryland for 11years and taught adult and children's classes at The Baltimore Clayworks and Chesapeake Art Centre. I intend to combine clay and metal in future work, lots of ideas buzzing, I'm determined to squeeze in an evening devoted to clay as often as possible. I visited PotFest in the Park this year, an annual event, I just adore it, stall after stall of highly skilled and imaginative ceramic work, very motivating and in the gorgeous setting of Hutton in the Forest. I'm posting a pic of my buys.... I never return empty handed. This year I bought a mug from one of my favourite ceramic artists from Germany Kathrin Najorka Keramik, I bought a lovely jug from her last year (I'll take a pic and post it) this mug gives me so much pleasure to drink my morning cuppa out of. I also bought a salt glazed bowl and spoon from Southampton artist Liz Gale, roll on next Potfest!!

I will blog more mud.......


  1. I'm a bit of a pot fan myself but I don't buy much in the way of new pots, I should do to keep living artists going. I especially like the proportions of the mug which you bought.

  2. I just love my mug Katrina! I have so many handmade cups and mugs by artists I admire - but there are probably only a handful I regularly use, it must be comfortable to hold in my hand, the lip must not be too thin and the tea a good colour in it!
