It’s that time again for all the schools in Worcestershire to exhibit and take pride in all their creative exploits from the academic year.

Redditch Primary School works with Eastnor Pottery and Flying Potter to produce Ceramic Tile Panel

Voices and visions 2016 takes place at Worcester  Cathedral for the next three weeks and show cases all the artistic talent from the county’s schools and colleges.

We are proud to have partnered at least two Worcestershire Schools represented at this year’s show.

In April we worked with Holyoaks First School, Redditch and Bengeworth Academy, Evesham to help them realize some fantastic clay and ceramic art works.

We produced a couple of collaborative oak tree wall panels with Holyoaks with every child in the school making and painting a clay leaf.

The school did an excellent job of mounting the tiles on some rather wonderfully painted boards – good work you guys.

Jon worked with YR1 at Bengeworth on a range of collaborative, terracotta dream pots and bottles inspired by Roald Dahl’s Big Friendly Giant. – BFG!

Brilliant contemporary ceramics exhibition at Wolverhampton City Art Gallery by makers who choose to work on a large scale.

As part of the exhibition launch on Saturday 20th Feb, Jon took x4 potter’s wheels along for visitors to take turns on.

Phew, what a busy day! Punter’s were queuing up around the block and Jon and his intrepid team of undergraduates from Wolverhampton Uni potted on through lunch to ensure everybody who wanted to sample the delights of the potter’s wheel did so.

Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter Ceramic Sound ProjectOnce again, Jon Williams (the flying potter) has been in the local news. The most recent article in the Hereford Times looked at Jon’s collaboration with three Hereford Museums to produce interactive ceramic artworks for visitors to discover and play.

Details of Jon’s creative journey can be found by visiting his blog.

Had a lovely day at Bilston Craft Gallery at their annual garden party event. Not actually working with clay on this occasion but selling exhibits from my hugely successful touring Sensational Clay exhibition.

Steve Edwards a West Midlands basd graffiti artist was also present, adding a vibrant and colourful aspect to proceedings.

I still have a few pieces left if anybody is interested in purchasing a Jon Williams original at a discount price. Please email me at: admin@eastnorpottery.co.uk for further details.

I’m looking to sell all the exhibits from my solo, touring exhibition ‘Sensational Clay’ at a one off event – The Garden Festival at Bilston Craft Gallery in the West Midlands.

I’ll be offering all the pieces at a fraction of their original value, in fact everything will be priced between a bargain £5 and £30 – everything must go!

For those who didn’t have the opportunity to visit the exhibition in one of five venues across the West Midlands and beyond, missed out on an extravaganza of fired ceramic designed to stimulate the five senses. All the exhibits were made with visitor interaction in mind and as well as being accessible to touch, there were aromatic pieces, musical rattle pots and sculptural curios inspired by food and drink.

Sensational Clay was first exhibited at Bilston Craft Gallery in the Summer of 2011. The show proved so popular with  it’s intended family audience, the Gallery suggested it be offered to other venues as a touring resource. It went on to be exhibited at New Brewery Arts in Cirencester, Tulie House Museum & Art gallery in Carslile, Worcester City Museum & Art Gallery before it’s last outing at Leamington Spa Art Gallery in Warwickshire.

The Garden Festival starts at 2pm and is due to finish at 5pm but do hurry as the work won’t be around for long!
