“Shall we have a cup of tea?” is the start of that awkward conversation or a bit of time with a friend in need or, best of all, the start of an afternoon full of laughter leaving those cold dregs far behind.
The wocART collective brings together five local artists and asks “What does "Community mean to you?” For Marcus coming together over drink and food is a glue in our community. Making cups and bowls to enable this feels even more of a privilege this year.
"Each piece is different, satisfying curious hands and eyes, adding to the moments of your day."
There is something about handmade pottery that hooked me into making it five years ago. I went to nightclasses and my addiction grew. Soon I was converting the garage into a studio, saving for a wheel, a kiln and believing in Kiln Gods. I still have the day job but my passion is definitely making, failing and learning with a lump of clay at the wheel. It is a great therapy that I encourage you to try. Today I make cups, bowls, jugs and vases for everyday use. At the moment I am enjoying keeping it simple and making cups and bowls for the everyday moments. Enjoy.
