I Have been working as a freelance graphic designer for many years, mostly for London clients.
When I was about 9 years old I threw a pot at the local pottery studio with the help of Tessa Oates the tutor. 40 years later (having not touched clay in the meantime) I embarked on an evening class there (Tessa Oates is still there!).
I have been enjoying throwing pots since September 2012 and have just (December 2013) installed my own electric kiln at home.
I am finding this stage rather daunting. Throwing was (relatively) easy, but the variables in glazing are mind-blowing. I am trying to calm down and work out what to do next. Semi-crystal glazes are already showing up my severe lack of knowledge, but I feel I have taken another big step in the learning process.
Having a wheel and now a kiln (and using them) makes me a potter and I find that rather exciting.
