Geoffrey Fuller: Three Stags’ Heads : Wardlow Mires Pottery and Food Festival

bloggeoff11
A celebration of the Table with over 50* renowned potters, quality food producers and much more. This is the 4th year of the festival.
Held by Geoff and Pat Fuller both potters theselves. Pats driving force and organisational skills makes this a unique and successful event don’t miss it.
About Geoffrey Fuller: 
As potters we all know about fire how it transforms clay to pottery how different temperatures affect the pot and all handmade pots are individual just as us their makers. Each one of us that are potters also has a fire inside of us sparked off by something we have seen or captured from another individual who may or may not be a potter. Maybe as in my case an individual who has a special fire that burns so bright that it consumes all around who have an interest in pottery.
I met Geoff Fuller back in 1977 at an adult education evening class he ran within two terms I had I had given up a well paid job that I actually enjoyed signed up to a vocational pottery course at my local Art College where Geoff was a lecturer. On leaving college and until reaching retirement age 65 I spent that time as a full time potter and have for the last 6 years been making and doing what I want. I have stayed in touch  all those years and I know how many potters some who are recognised names now who have also been directly influenced by him. Their students also have carried that flame and so it goes on fire after fire. I can see his influence everywhere.  Although now in his 80th year he still active and influential as ever.
He and his wife Pat run and hold what I consider the very best of shows Wardlow Mires Pottery and Food Festival the only way I can describe it that it is the Glastonbury of Pottery Festivals  attracting potters such as Lisa Hammond, Ruthanne Tudbull, Doug Fitch, Hannah McAndrew, Paul Young, Josie Walter I could just go on and on. Only a few individuals have this effect Geoff should be much more recognised. I am so glad I was able to get warm near the fire - Jim Simpson.
