Visit to Svend Bayer & Sandy Brown

This year we'll be returning to Svend Bayer’s studio for his annual sale, at which you should be able to acquire wonderful examples of work by this renowned potter at bargain prices. We shall also have the opportunity to see his remarkable wood fired kilns, in which his work is fired to cone 12 over a period of about four days. The pottery is at Duckpool Cottage, Sheepwash, Black Torrington, North Devon and is best approached from Highampton on the Holsworthy to Hatherleigh road, turning left to travel due north, passing straight through Sheepwash village square, continuing for about 1.5 miles to Filleigh Moor, grid reference SX 485086. Please aim to be there at 10.30 am.
Lunch will be at either the Half Moon at Sheepwash (which changes hands in early November) or the Royal George or the Beaver at Appledore. More details on the day.
We travel to Appledore to meet Sandy Brown at 2.30pm at her home, 3 Marine Parade, EX39 1PJ, where we will see her collection of expressive, colourful ceramic artwork. Please be punctual. We will later move on to Sandy’s studio, the Glove Factory.
Please contact Jon Whitten on 01208 880836 or whitten@stkew.eclipse.co.uk if you are intending to come. Please try to share transport where possible.
