Ugly mugs @ Bilston!

Pottery for kids at Bilston Craft Gallery Aug 2014Great to be back at Bilston Craft Gallery working with some of Wolverhamptons young pottery enthusiasts. We made a motley collection of ugly mugs which, when fired, glazed and returned to their makers – could be used for proper hot chocolate and other beverages.

A pheasant week at Eastnor Castle

Castle visitors indulge in some collaborative clay fun in the Castle Courtyard with the Flying PotterWe love working at Eastnor Castle, offering visitors the chance to collaborate on significant clay sculptures.

In the past we’ve made knights, a castle, a dragon and even an Estate inspired totem pole.

This year, well over 1000 visitors help make x5 amazing terracotta pheasants. The birds have been constructed and are waiting to be fired. As soon as the fowl are out of the kilns we’ll photograph them and post the pics online. We’ll also exhibit them in the Dry Cleaners window in Ledbury probably around October time.
