Summer is truly underway now and the coming months look like being as busy as always. This week I will be showing work at two venues in my home town of Carlow. I have just spent a weekend with some woodfirers giving my friend Marcus a hand in firing his noborigama at Glencairn in Waterford. Firing such a kiln is a big deal as many months work is committed to the unpredictable fire.
As I write we await in nervous anticipation the opening of the kiln which will take place mid week.
Tomorrow I will set up at our local library where our group Form Carlow will be featuring for Carlow Arts Festival.
I will also show some pieces at the St Ledger Gallery on Tullow Street in Carlow. This exhibition of Painting, Sculpture, Mixed Media and Ceramic will run for the duration of the festival.
The following weeks will be taken up with making again as I prepare for The Potters Market in Galway which will take place in July. Other events/exhibitions will follow over the summer months so the search for the perfect pot continues…….:-)
