If you've followed this blog for a while you'll know that I'm more than a bit partial to pots, and fascinated by how ceramics uses all the elements - earth mixed with water, dried in air then fired. Now, all of a sudden, life seems to be full of interesting pottery events and people.
I've recently had the good fortune to interview Lotte Glob, stunning ceramic artist based on a croft a bit north of me, and the result is here. Lotte's own website, full of glorious images of her work, is here.
At An Talla Solais, the gallery in Ullapool, there is currently a gorgeous exhibition of ceramics and associated art, and my review is on the Northings website.
And next week, I am getting very excited about the prospect of helping to build a neolithic-style pit to fire pots, which Brenda, one of the project officers for the Life and Death in Assynt's Past project, has been encouraging people to make (see here, for example). It's going to be fun!
