Working towards an anagama firing

Pots drying outside

Pinched jugs and salt pots in porcelain

Good to be throwing in stoneware clay instead of porcelain

Many cups for the back chamber

The firing will take place from next weekend and last for at least three days.

Fifty/Fifty Fulby

Potters Hans and Birgitte Börjeson are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of their workshop and home in the village of Fulby, near Sorø, Sjælland, Denmark.
Today a small retrospective exhibition opened in Officinet, Bredgade 66, the gallery of Danske Kunsthåndværkere, the Danish Crafts Association.
