Reviews

Sorry to pack the Facebook page with messages. I have added bits from the Mostyn Gallery Web Site about Bev’s exhibition under the reviews page. This is essentially the same information as Pea has already put on the Facebook site. I have done this to encourage you to contribute to this page. I would like to post reviews of exhibitions, books, events etc etc. I would also like to develop this blog page and gradually index it to become an archive. So send me technical tips, glaze details etc etc. Regards Richards

I have posted an interview that the Daily Post conducted with Bev Bell-Hughes. Remember some of Bev’s work is exhibited at the Mostyn Gallery in Llandudno at the moment. Additionally Bev was the subject of an article in Ceramics Review last month.

Applications to show your work in the joint NWP and South Wales Potter’s exhibition have to be in by this Sunday 10th September. Please send six images of your work and a personal statement to mari@oriel.org. Ideally these will be sent on disc as high resolution images suitable for publication to Mari Jones, Plas Glyn y Weddw, Llanbederog, Pwllheli, LL53 7TT. In view of the short time available I suggest that if you have not sent anything so far you also send images of a reduced resolution (1 -2Mbit) by Email.

Under the Events tab on the Past Events page you will find a brief review of the 2017 Raku event and the photographs I have received so far. More photos need – send to nantglyn.ysgol@yahoo.com  Also any from Ceramics Wales – review of this event also welcome.

I have added a review page and started it with a review of Terry Bell-Hughes Talk/Demo. If you attend an event/exhibition/read a great pottery book etc etc and want to write a review please aend it to me at nantglyn.ysgol@yahoo.com

For those of you with nothing better to do you may have noticed that I tend to play with the web site in little splurges. Today this is because I am shovelling stone and need to take breaks to cool down. Anyhow I am playing with the Blog. I want to develop the Blog so that it becomes more interactive and acts as an archive. To make it more interactive I am adding Comments boxes to some Blog posts. This may attract lots of Spam posts, but as I am keeping the editing rights I hope it does not result in lots of filtering work. To build the archive function I am playing with Categories and hope by selecting sensible topics it will become searchable. So I have cooled down a bit so back to shovelling.

 

Another comment on the importance of having your work on the members pages is that when NWP is invited to exhibit at venues such as Craft in the Bay, selectors will look at our web site first. Galleries will often wish to select work themselves and they will base their selection on the web site. So it is really in your interest to have your work on view, show your best work and keep it up to date. – send info to nantglyn.ysgol@yahoo.com.

Hi, Finally managed to update the web site a bit. Details of the Raku event have been added and a new member’s work. Please let me know if you wish to be added to the members work section. I need a short personal statement and some images in jpg format. Also if anyone wants their entry updating send me details. Send me details of any schools, classes, exhibitions etc etc that you want advertising. Can now import jpg and document links more easilly. Everyone going to the International Ceramics Festival – have a great time, Regards Richard.

I have added the poster advertising this event on the events page. If you want to have a table to sell work contact Bev – but be quick as spaces are limited. Also adverts for the event can be obtained from Sue Barnes – please get copies and place in local shops, pubs, etc etc.
