A few pots and words for a Monday Morning........

A great a week. A couple of trips over to St.Ives. A mid-week visit to watch the firing of the Soda kiln. The kiln was packed with St.Ives standard-ware and work by Jeff Oestreich. Jeff is an American Potter who has been in St.Ives for a month long residency. Jeff trained at the St.Ives Pottery in the late 60's under the supervision of Bernard Leach and the great William Marshall. The residency culminated in an exhibition of 77 pieces of work. A mixture of pieces bought over from the States and new work created at the Pottery. The preview was great fun on Saturday night, with the pots flying out the door with happy punters!! have a look at the St.Ives pottery site for more info.
