Throwing Pots

We had a fantastic hands on craft meeting in July when De Beauvoir artist, Marie Claire Porter  brought her potter’s wheel to our meeting.  Marie Claire began making ceramics in 2014.  Trained as a medical doctor and working in the field of neurology, she is drawn to making pieces that not only have form, but function, fulfilling the need to create something that was both practical and artistic.  She talked about her journey from neurology to potters wheel and demonstrated the art of throwing a pot.  A number of very brave members got to experiment with throwing their own pots and we all took up the opportunity to make a coil pot. Marie Claire kindly offered to fire our pots and we clearly have a number of budding potters amongst our members looking at the array of items to be taken away to the oven.

  1. Hi,

    I wondered in to try and find your book club this evening in the de Beauvoir arms, but I couldn’t place you. Is there a method for spotting members?

    Thanks,
    Rachel

    • Hi Rachel,
      Really sorry you were unable to meet with the book group, it got so noisy in the pub, they went to a members house. All the information about the next one is on the relevant page on the website, do get in touch with us at debeauvoirwi@gmail.com and we can send through the details of where we will be meeting.
