One of my potter friends, Svend Bayer is regarded as the best wood-fire potter in the U.K. and his fame is worldwide. I went to help at his latest 4-day firing in Devon last week. It was a great pleasure to work with him and I liked his simple life style, keeping everything tidy and clean around the pottery.
I always find progress in his pots, something small but a new approach. I look forward to his solo exhibition in Oxford next week. Click here for more about his exhibition information .
