Even as I was unboxing the collection of Musical Water jugs, young musicians and pottery lovers were on the scene, eager to trial the installation. The pots will be proper put through their paces on Sunday 26th July as the new interactive Water Park at The Waterworks Museum in Hereford gets it’s official opening by the Mayor of Hereford.
So, I’ve decided to sit the apples on their very own terracotta plinths. Here’s one with the addition of sound holes for added amplification.

Creative photo session with a sackful of oversized ceramic apples, a bucket of pottery bones and genius photographer Kirsty Pye,
The amazing images will shape the promotional flyer to accompany the interactive installations in all three Hereford Museums, designed to signpost visitors to each venue.
I met with Noel, the Waterworks Museum’s Director on Monday and as is customary, we finished our meeting with a a stroll around the Waterpark to view progress.
It’s been a long time in the making but the Park full of pumps and pistons is nearing completion.
All the interactive activity stations have been built by the industrious team of volunteers and the final interpretation is being prepared at the printers.
The site officially opens on the 26th July 2015 and hopefully the Potter’s Bench (above) will be primed with Musical jugs and ready for action. Watch this space!
Think I’ve just found my designer for the project flyer!
When he’s not wiring up oversized ceramic apples or lighting strange brick clay cooking pots here at Eastnor Pottery, digital and creative maestro Ashley Brown gets to work on some pretty amazing projects.
He is currently Artist in Residence at Pervasive Media at the Watershed in Bristol having successfully applied for the post earlier this year.

Brilliant day today with Ash introducing tech and LED lights into the cooking pots.
Here’s a wee video clip of the xylophone in action.
The last time I smoked fired some pottery, it was with a load of excited 4 yr olds from Evesham Nursery School at their amazing Forest School site in Worcestershire.
It was great to re-visit the technique here at the Pottery and marvel at the way the smoke draws and designs across the brick clay surface.
These terracotta beauties will form part of the xylophone extravaganza destined for Coningsby Medieval Museum in Hereford.
