A long day on Tuesday installing “crafting history” at Manchester Craft and Design Centre. It’s there until November , with most of the pots being auctioned for charity – at that point.
As usual, I started off thinking it looked terrible, then it looked great, then terrible again. The grey background is really great though, all power to Dena Bagi for choosing it!
My favourites were I think the large stacked plates with “The King of Steam”, in a new pale blue glaze, although the beakers looked good too.
These are inscribed with the names of people who currently work at the Centre. There’s a lot of history on the other pots, but I wanted people who are there now to be included – they are tomorrow’s history, after all.
