Children get their inspiration from Andy Goldsworthy

The children at Beverley Minster school were studying the work of Andy Goldsworthy - an artist working in the environment using natural materials. They asked if I could go in and make some pottery with them inspired by his work.

In February I went in and we made planters, finished with a collar that was created by impressing natural materials into the clay - like pine cones, leaves, twigs, bark etc.

The only problem was that we went into Lockdown before the pots were fired. But now the restrictions are being lifted gradually and the childen are back at school, so tomorrow I am delivering the pots to Beverley.


It is really beginning to feel that we are gradually getting back to some form of normality.
