On our way home from Snowdonia with friends Charlie and Rosemary Burton last Thursday we called in to see the ceramist Meri Wells. This is a photograph of her new kiln and the biscuit fired beast that was sitting outside it on a chair.
Meri’s older, log fired kiln sits nearby, still in regular use. The bricks are numbered so that they might be removed and replaced in the correct order.
Then, on Sunday, we called in to see Charlie and Rosemary. I took this photograph in Charlie’s studio – the photograph simply doesn’t do the gaze of the soldier justice. In reality he fixes you with the most broken and haunted stare.
Two artists and two studios.
