New pots from Sheila Herring

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

S.H._dish2Marking a year of apprenticeship to Jeremy as part of the ‘Adopt a Potter’ trust scheme, Sheila Herring will be exhibiting her new body of wood-fired salt-glaze at the forthcoming Autumn Wobage show. In the way that Mick Casson supported and nurtured new young talent, it seems fitting that the exciting and spirited work that Sheila has been developing over recent months will be exhibited adjacent to Mick’s retrospective and book launch. The September exhibition forms part of ‘H’Art’, Herefordshire’s annual artweek. If you are out of county and considering a visit, rest assured that alongside the Wobage exhibitions, there is an abundance of artist’s open studios and galleries to visit. We open at Wobage on the evening of Friday 10th September with live jazz and refreshments, 6pm-9pm, then continuing until Sunday 19th, 10am – 5pm.

Adopt a Potter mugs

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

AaP_mugsSheila Herring has been busily making mugs to donate to the ‘Adopt a Potter’ Trust which is supporting her apprenticeship to Jeremy this year. Jeremy has designed the shape and handle for the mug, which have been adapted to three different sizes. A batch have just been beautifully fired in the small wood-salt kiln. These mugs will be sold at Ceramics fairs over the Summer, at ‘Earth & Fire’ at Rufford Park in June and at ‘Art in Clay’, Hatfield House in August.
