Each potter deserves a mention, but space precludes that. I was entranced by the lovely raku works of Ruth Terry and Melissa Grimwade, whose pot “Feathers”, contrasted the fragility of the decorative feathers with the sturdy rounded pot shape upon which they were placed. Figurines have been explored by many of the potters who produced models of birds and animals both real and imagined.
Particularly striking were the three stark goddesses of Jo-Ellen Jackson contrasted with the funky witty ladies produced by Elspeth Keith. These hand built objects included high plain huts and the arresting totem poles of Katrina Carter made from wheel thrown pot shapes that towered over a meter and would look especially lovely in a garden. These works showed the special glazing skills of this group, who can surprise and delight viewers with their variety of visions for clay.
