Eeles Family Pottery – open weekend 27/28 July 2013
They are holding the open weekend on 27th & 28th of July and will be firing the Raku kiln at 11am and 2pm both days so you can enjoy the thrill and excitement of the flames around the Raku pots. The pots are removed from the kiln individually using tongs and placed on sawdust, catching the sawdust alight which engulfs the pot in flames, the reduction or oxidation of the copper changes the copper into the rainbow of colours you see on the finished pots. There is always a buzz of excitement at the pottery when we are firing but we do require our visitors to keep well back and to move if necessary to allow safe transport of hot pots.
The Raku firing needs reasonable weather to take place so see our web site http://www.eelespottery.co.uk/ for updates.
Our address is Eeles Family Pottery, Mosterton, Beaminster, Dorset. DT8 3HN
There will be tours of the workshop at various stages throughout the day.
