Andy McInnes

The organiser for Art in Clay at Hatfield and Farnhan - Will be talking about how a newcomer to making applications to a ceramics market should go about preparing the work for  application, the application process and how best to present your work to the buying public should you be successful with your application.

Eddie Curtis

A Fellow of the Craft Potter Association says – “My current project, The Blast, was the result of one of the most strongly felt inspirations I have experienced in quite some time. The brutal yet beautiful landscape that now inspired me. What I saw was a combination of textures, an unlikely juxtaposition of the man-made and the natural, objects long bereft of their usefulness and worn and encroached upon by erosion and encrustation. I was looking at sand, clay, metal and stone in various combinations. The textures were cracked, crazed, bright, blunt, sharp, wet, slippy, slimy smooth hard. It has probably been my most rewarding project to date.”

Mike Dodd

A Fellow of the Craft Potters Association – “Essential to his philosophy is an oriental view that the role of the individual in the creation of true art is unobtrusive. Mike’s work has maintained this philosophy in the making of unshowy pots with simply applied surface textures and subtle glazes sourced from naturally occurring materials. It is a rare approach that has required during his career an intense personal application. As a result his work enjoys the support of many serious collectors of English pottery, as well as that of some respected critics whose judgement of Mike’s work is unusually and openly generous, simply that it has beauty.” Paul Vincent, Founding Editor of ‘Ceramics in Society
