On Saturday, an unexpectedly warm day, members of BPSS and friends gathered at Elaine’s farm in Drayton Beauchamp to Raku their pottery. Richard and I managed to fire over 60 pieces in the day. Paula did some smoke firing as well.
It was a beautiful setting and we were accompanied by red kites and buzzards circling overhead, not to mention numerous dogs and Elaine’s daughter’s magnificent horses. I even managed to find a few loose horse hairs to make a horsehair pot.
Thanks to Peter for the following images of the day’s work:
