As mentioned in my previous blog I have entered a piece in the competition.
My bowl called "Ethnic Blue" won "highly commended" and sold as well. Thanks to my friend Anna, who despite me saying I had nothing decent on hand convinced my to enter it!
As you can see I am very happy indeed.
10 members of our group, "The Port Hacking Potters" have been there all day on Friday and demonstrated what pottery is all about. Some did throwing, others decorating and a few hand building.
Everybody loves watching someone on the pottery wheel, it must be fascinating to see a piece take shape from a lump of clay to a usable item.
If you are at the Royal Easter Show make sure to drop in to the feature demo site manned by a different group of potters every day and say HI.
Anyway, it was a long but enjoyable day meeting and talking to all sorts of people. I may have entered a piece of pottery for the first but probably not the last time!
