I know, I know, such a sloppy blogger. Sorry. Must try harder next year.

Well it's all been go here down at Salhouse Broad. Dredging has been taking place in parts, so I have

lots and lots of reclaimed silt to turn into lots of lovely Wood & Soda fired glazes.

It never ceases to amaze me that a bucket full of smelly slop can transform itself into a beautiful green glaze with the simple addition of fire. As they used to say on the bread adverts, nothing added, nor taken away.

Certainly, people up from the Broad enjoyed seeing and buying my work this past summer. More

mooring spaces and the addition of the campsite has increased my visitor numbers hugely and it was lovely to meet so many delightful people this summer. Many of them taking pots for a bit of a boat trip!

Moving into Autumn, I was delighted to be exhibiting at a new show in Cambridge this October. "Innovations", organised by ONLINE CERAMICS looked stunning. A beautiful setting in The Guildhall showed off the work of some of the Country's best Potters (and me!) to very great effect. It was fantastic

to see Wally Keeler again, and although I was unable to listen to his talk he came and spoke to those

of us who couldn't leave our stands.

We are so lucky to be able to exhibit our work in such beautiful places, for example, my next exhibition

(with NCCS) isin The Hostry at Norwich Cathedral. The flint & wooden building is a stunning setting for

the work of the 24 of our members taking part. Please come and join us, I look forward to seeing you there.
