Although it would have been cutting it fine getting back from Birmingham, Jon and Gemma had agreed to host Emily’s 11th birthday at the studio on Friday afternoon. We were delighted to say that everything fell in to place with Jon the potter, Emily and friends arriving within minutes of each other in Eastnor.
The session began with a collaborative pot – all the guests modelled Emily a little ballet themed motif. These were then applied to Jon’s wheel demonstration piece – the result:- an encrusted, commemorative jug to be fired and will serve as a permanent reminder of a brilliant 11th birthday.
