Pottery Demonstration

My friend Anne Morrison is a well-known potter and award-winning ceramic sculptor (and niece of Joan Eardley, co-incidently) (oh, and she has the same birthday as me!).

These are some of her amazing raku-fired pots, which have found-driftwood handles.

This weekend she's holding a demonstration to show how she makes her hand-built pots and sculptures.  Here's some of her mixed-media sculptures, which combine found items such as drifted and wire, along with slumped glass and ceramic figures.

Anne Morrison, On the Edge (driftwood/ceramic)
I own this one...

Anne Morrison, They Dreamed Their Dreams So We Could Live Them (Wood/Glass/Mixed) 
It has old family photos and letters transferred onto the found wood and the fused glass elements of the piece.  It's very feminine and tactile.
If you'd like to see more, then Anne will be at the 
Lillie Art Gallery, Station Road, Milngavie G62 8DZ (near Glasgow) from 10am to 3.30pm on Saturday 8th September 
and she's happy for you have a chat and to watch her work.  So if you're in the area, please do drop by!
