Art in Clay Hatfield Pottery & Ceramics Festival : 6th 7th 8th July 2012

 An exceptional display of ceramics and pottery at this three-day out-door event in marquees in the beautiful parklands of Hatfield House. You will be able to meet makers from across Europe at over 180 stands, chat about their work and purchase some of the most imaginative and creative work made in clay.

There will be something for the collector; established potters will be exhibiting at the show, Robin Welch, Mary Rich and Svend Bayer just some of the names you might recognise. Alongside these will be newcomers and graduates showing for the first time at Art in Clay.

Art in Clay is also an entertaining family day out with two areas where young and old can show
their creative side; the Throw-a-Pot and the Make and Take, both suitable for everyone over 4 years old to have a go. In the Throw-a- Pot marquee an experienced thrower will help you to throw your very own pot to take home with you and in the Make and Take area there will be helpers available to inspire you to mold or sculpt your own creation. There are also lovely walks around the grounds and a children’s play area a short walk from the marquees.

On the 1st of June, Ridley Scott’s new science fiction film “Prometheus”‘ came to cinemas throughout the UK, and will shortly be launched worldwide. Rob Sollis spent four months in 2011 working at Pinewood Studios making large-scale ceramics that play a major part of the plot in the movie.

On the 6th 7th 8th July, Rob will be exhibiting at the ‘Art in Clay’ show at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, where he will be demonstrating the making and “Raku” firing techniques he used to create the unique ceramics for the Prometheus movie. Rob will also be exhibiting a new body of work created over the last 12 months.

There really is something for everyone, including a full program of talks and
demonstrations for those interested in the technical side of ceramics, and ongoing demonstrations within the marquees. You will be fascinated by the amazing skills on show and the variety of work on display, from garden pots to domestic-ware, life size sculptures and some very original Art in Clay.

There are a number of awards given at the show, presented on Saturday as the show closes at around 5.30pm; you are welcome to stay for the awards.
