The great Walter Keeler at Redlees Studios last week

When I'm not taking pictures or sifting through years of negatives (for young people "negatives" are what we used to fix images through very cumbersome cameras before the digital age; think of them as ancient memory cards),  anyway I digress, so when I'm not busy with pictures old and new, I tend to spend time getting my hands dirty with clay.
I caught the bug a few years ago and even if I live until 112, it looks like there won't be enough time to explore all the possibilities of the world of Ceramics.
The good people of London Potters organised a talk and demonstration by the great British potter Walter Keeler. The Redlees Studios were full to the brim and Walter kept everybody captivated all afternoon and beyond. Here are some shots of the great man with his favorite tools (a piece of wood and a large metal modelling tool!) showing the making of a jug and a teapot:

If you fancy owning a pot by Walter Keeler, check out the Online Ceramics Shop .
