Cornwall Ceramics and Glass Group AGM

Cornwall Ceramics and Glass Group AGM meeting with Slideshow, talk and demonstration by Simon Carroll
1pm – 5pm Ladock Village Hall, Saturday 29th September 2007

At 1pm refreshments, including free pasties, will be available plus a chance to look at and buy books and equipment.
2pm onwards, a demonstration and slide show by potter Simon Carroll followed by The Cornwall Ceramics and Glass Group AGM.

Simon Carroll’s work is highly original and internationally known. The forms are made from sections that are thrown, pressed into moulds to give surface patterns and textures and assembled together often altered and pushed into eccentric shapes.
He currently works in a studio converted from a derelict airfield building near Padstow. He uses a simple vocabulary of slips and glazes in an exciting and spontaneous way giving great scope for intuitive expression.
