Coleford Residency

On Friday I headed back down to the Forest of Dean to spend my second day at the brickworks – the chaps had very efficiently and kindly fired three of the seven pots made on my first visit, (the rest were in the dryer or kiln). Inspired by the results, I threw three more large ‘discovery pots’ each weighing in at a whopping 35kg!

 

Check out the sculptural qualities of these hand carved brick finials. I had the privilege of watching the men craft the clay block in a matter of minutes – nice work Porky!
