CORRECTION • In last month’s magazine, we wrongly attributed this news item to Debbie Bent. The story was sent in by Jo McAree of Eastcott Studios. We do apologise.

THE CLAYCRAFT CHALLENGE

EVENTS LISTINGS

NEW BOOK

THROWN BIRD BATH • This is a challenging project that will test your skills, but to make it a little easier and avoid having to throw large amounts of clay, we’ve designed the form in three parts. For this to work, you must pay very close attention to making accurate measurements

SPOTLIGHT ON: MKM POTTERY TOOLS • Creating beauty in clay!

LINDA BLOOMFIELD ZINC OXIDE IN GLAZES

OYA/OLLA • What is an oya, you might well be asking? Well, it’s a terracotta vessel that’s buried in the ground to water the garden naturally. Not only does their use dramatically reduce water waste but also watering time. So, buried in the ground next to your courgettes, you’re bound to get a bumper crop with very little fuss!

DIARY OF A STUDIO POTTER • JOURNAL ENTRY 4

POTTERY PETS! • Many children seem to delight in making animals, so this is a simple and fun project for them, as well as adults who love dogs. AND, if you don’t have a kiln, simply use air drying clay and paint the detail with acrylic colour as an alternative

STUDIO CATCH-UP • The various Covid-related lockdowns and restrictions have impacted everyone over the past year. Most businesses have struggled, some have closed, but others have adapted and found a new way of working. We caught up with Jo McAree from Eastcott Studios to find out how she’s doing

The ClayCraft Challenge • If, like us, you’re enjoying the Great Pottery Throw Down, and have been inspired to make along with the episodes, we’d love to see the results! We’ll print a selection of your work and announce a monthly winner, who will receive a year’s subscription to ClayCraft plus one of our split-leg aprons

MADE WITH CLAY STUDIO • Former members of the Digswell Ceramics Community have been in touch to let us know about their new studio

Doug’s DIARY

Textured slab-built press dishes • After my last blog’s disasters, things could only get better, and I had at least learned how to use my slab roller more successfully. I’ve had my eye on this project for a while and really enjoyed it
