Mike Dodd's master-class

Mike gave an interesting talk and slideshow about his life and work this was followed by various demonstrations.
I had been curious how the glaze on the large pot had been achieved. So for me the best part was the final demonstration when, whilst talking about not taking things too serious and allowing oneself time to play Mike very precisely, lovingly, and with total concentration added dry china-clay to a wet pot and then continued to throw the said pot one-handed into the desired shape.
Mike obviously takes his play very serious!
More details on the events page soon
