17th Art in Clay Hatfield – August 2011

A good show as always, with a vast range of top quality work to view. The studiopottery award (a free stand in next years show) went to Richard Godfrey this year. This is the 7th year this award has been made with previous awards going to: Deirdre Burnett, Eddie and Margaret Curtis, Ian Rylatt, Geoffrey Swindell, Chris Lewis and Barry Guppy. I cannot really highlight particular favourites as there is so much. For me it is always a pleasure to meet and chat with old friends and to meet new ones. ┬áTo see how different ceramicists work is developing and to experience the excitement of finding new work by makers i have not seen before. A bonus this year was the Henry Moore exhibition at Hatfield House. (pictures, left to right, top to bottom.
