I spent the last few days searching for suitable containers for the daffodils. Initially I wanted to create an installation piece using the daffodils and peat. The daffodils would not last very long so I decided to find a suitable container.

I brought in my potters wheel as I had the idea to throw simple cylinder forms and place the daffodils into the unfired containers. I like the effect of repetition especially Anthony Gromely’s work with the clay people.

I tried a few cylinders but decided against using them this time but it will definitely be something I will  return to during this residency.

I had a few people call into the gallery space to make a teabowl. It is amazing to see people get very involved with the clay.
