This being my second time at "Art in Clay" at Hatfield House I was a lot more relaxed than last year. Having learnt my lesson last year, I pitched my tent first, thus ensuring a good spot. Not too near the noisy students, but not too far away from the loos and showers either.
Domestics settled, I was really pleased to see that I was in almost the same spot as last year, opposite David and Margaret Frith www.frithpottery,co.uk - and just up the row from fellow East Anglian potter Robin Welsh, www.robinwelsh.co.uk - not too shabby for a temporary address!
It was also great to catch up with my I.W.C.A.T. - http:/www.japan-.net.jp/-iwcat/)
Japanese friends who had come from Tokoname, Tomoko Okuda and Peter Seabridge.
Again it was a good weekend, with the good old British weather showing it's range of skills, from tipping it down when we were setting up to absolutely broiling the very next afternoon.
