The exhibition this year at Wytham Woods Kilns Project was to have been an exciting one. We had arranged for two French woodfiring Artists-in-Residence (Claude Aussage and Manon Vallé) to be at Oxford University (Harris-Manchester College: see site 460) over the Artweeks period, during which we would have run kiln building courses, clay throwing workshops and a firing of our wood kiln. We would also have our big marquees set up in the Woods at the kilnsite and at the Wytham Studio, where the exhibitions that you would have been able to see would have included ceramics by our pottery team and prints by our printmaking group. Sadly none of that is going to happen this year.
The best I can do is to list some of the potters, whose work you would have seen, and who you could have met during your visits to Wytham in May. They all have websites, and most of them have a means of buying pots or print online. If you are interested in their work, do please contact them. Most of us live from the sales of the things we make, and all of us would appreciate your support.
