I have already made 20 new bowls for the next Galerie Besson Show (tentative opening date 18th November) and have booked a firing in the Bourry Box kiln at Guldagergaard for mid October.
Robert Sanderson who built the kiln will be working at Guldagergaard all October, and nothing could be better than having him around to share a firing. He fires without a pyrometer - and I really like doing that too.
I have to be in South Africa from the 17th September til the 6th October - so not all my time can be spent in pinching and firing.
Hope to visit Cape Town potter friends - Clementina van der Walt, Lisa Firer, Andile Dyalvane and Katherine Glenday. Also Macgregor wood firer - Paul de Jongh.
