Yesterday I left Seattle where I had for four days participated in that feast of ceramics that is the NCECA Conference, with its attendant plethora of exhibitions spread over a geographically impossibly wide area, and flew to Helena, Montana, to start my residency at the Archie Bray.
|Stormy clouds over the old brickworks yesterday evening|
|The sign by the door of my studio.....|
|The train kiln - I do not think I can fill it in the time I have here|
|But perhaps this Catenary kiln?|
|Gail Nichols bowl just outside my door|
|Morning's work using Grolleg porcelain|
|The air is so dry these bowls can be finished in one day|
