A fantastic weekend, gathering together a selection of the best in the world and a good deal more than a few grey beards.

Loved the simplicity of this “wood fired” built by Peter Lange and Duncan Shearer. They made other kilns with potatoes and Yellow Pages phone books.

A sale of cups, some made by the famous, others by the not so famous raises money for the next Festival in 2015.

The kiln performed extremely well and may have gained Tom and I a trip to South Carolina, thank you Virginia Scotchie!
