Early Saturday morning...

and the sun has just gone behind the clouds but  the light is brighter and the golden daffodils glow, pale yellow primroses sparkle in the morning air. Birds are a cheeping and twittering  with flurries of chasing and darting in the bushes whilstcollecting magpies gather twigs for home building. A joy is in the air that we have turned a corner and Spring is nearly officially here with Winter banished to the dark reaches for  a while. Sewing is progressing on Daphne's Glove project and you can follow us all as a small group of artists on the blog called "A Group Gathering". Clay is being turned into teapots and cups and saucers ready for the Summer Show at Porthminster Gallery. A busy time ahead with work in mind for The Brindley Art Centre in October but that is rushing ahead too fast and I yearn for things to be slow , to savour the change in seasons, the development of work because only by taking ones time can you learn and absorb what has gone right , what can be done better, what surprises have occurred and lead you down the next path in progression as a maker...
