Derbyshire Open Arts 2013

We’re excited to once again be taking part in the Derbyshire Open Arts event. As in previous years we have a great line up of artists with new work to show.

We always start our preparations with a big clear up – Philippa has been in charge of the Studios…

here’s some photos of the kiln setting up and the work before it goes in. Apparently the kiln reaches 1000* Centigrade and at some point the work will be removed (whilst at this temperature!) and plunged into the silver dustbin which holds sawdust. I will ask Jim or Philippa to write a more accurate piece about the process later today.
