I was lucky enough to receive one of the art council grants to set up my own home studio as a result of having no access to equipment since March! I have used this grant to purchase a kiln and a pottery wheel. It was such a difficult decision to know what type/make/size to choose!
After a painful 10 weeks of waiting, my wheel arrived this week…and it is amazing! It’s an adjustable height, quiet, powerful and the foot peddle is really responsive. I was a bit wobbly to start off with but soon got stuck in! It’s so handy having access to the wheel at any time of the day because pots can be trimmed exactly when they need to before they become too dry.
I have been experimenting with different forms and scales which is exciting, I will post some pictures next week of what I have been making!
