A blog about working with clay and selling pots
Last Saturday, 14th November, my exhibition of retrospective and new work opened in the Applehouse Gallery, Guldagergaard, Skælskør.
Ingrid Nørby, founder and director of the now closed and much missed Galleri Nørby, Copenhagen, opened the exhibition.
After the opening there was a dinner in the beautiful first floor rooms of the studio building.
Festivities continued the next day, with breakfast for all at Hotel Postgården on Skælskør harbour front, followed by a memorable tour out in the district in a Parisian bus from 1934 - a Renault TN6 CHL - from the local Bus Historical Society.
