This rather striking terracotta mammoth was made by Jon the Potter at Worcester Museum and Art Gallery. Families were invited to drop by and help make the ice age beast as part of an exciting year long project called Lost Landscapes of Worcestershire. The project culminates in the summer of 2018 with an exhibition at both the Museum in Forgate Street and The Hive.

We are delighted at how well Aimee and Immy have settled into life here at Eastnor Pottery and the Flying Potter. In fact the pair are positively flying!
As well as all the wedging, fettling, kiln packing and cleaning, the girls have become very proficient at making pots on the potter’s wheel. So much so we haven’t had any hesitation in letting them share their new found talents with customers of all ages and abilities.
Earlier this year, Ethan successfully applied for a place on the BA Hons Ceramics course at Cardiff Metropolitan University. So, after four years of full time employment here at Eastnor Pottery, he has relinquished his role as senior workshop facilitator.
Obviously, we’ll miss him but equally we are delighted and extremely proud he’s off to Art College to embark on the next step of his creative journey.
Ethan came to us as a Community Arts Apprentice having had no prior experience of working with clay. He quickly mastered the potter’s wheel and so inspired by his new found skill, set up his own pottery studio in his garden.
By the end of his first apprenticeship year he’d led workshops in school, showed countless adults and children how to make pots on the potter’s wheel and become a superb ‘wedger’ of clay!
We wish Ethan every success down in that there Cardiff and we look forward to hearing all about his exploits in clay when he pops back to work the odd shift at weekends and in the holidays.
