Unconventional use of the potter’s wheel, but we love it!
How we miss those force 10 gusts and torrential downpours of a week ago!!!!
Despite the challenging conditions we had a ball and met some pretty fab people and aspiring potter’s.
Well done indeed to everybody who made it to the potting tent. It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with you all. Such a lovely, family friendly event!
More festival pics right here.
@lakefestuk 2020 takes place 13th – 16th August.
Photographic documentation is a key part of our practice here at Eastnor Pottery, particularly the Early Years and educational work we undertake.
Often a project will have a professional photographer assigned to record the clay creativity. Jon the potter has had the good fortune to work with some of the best photographers in the West Midlands and as a result has been influenced by their technique and approach.
The accumulated knowledge and experience paid off recently when Jon was compelled to enter one of his images in a competition organised by Hereford & Worcester Chamber of commerce. ‘Nail Art’ (above) won 2nd prize!
The brief was a simple one – submit in an image taken in the past 12 months at a Chamber event. ‘Nail Art’ was snapped by Jon at the Business Expo 2017 on the Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter stand where Jon and Ethan were encouraging delegates to try the potter’s wheel.
