Craft Fairs and Kilns

October has been a busy month for me, attending Origin - The London Contemporary Craft Fair, as part of the Thomas Lyte Showcase, and taking delivery of my first kiln.

The GTA 61 casting kiln was funded with support from the Arts Council North East England. It’s the last major piece of equipment needed to complete the set-up of my workshop space, located in my parents’ (very cold!) garage, in County Durham. Weighing almost half a tonne, I was a little disappointed to find out afterwards that the kiln could have been supplied in fuschia pink instead of blue, although I still love it. As soon as it was wired in I cast my first test pieces and was very pleased with the outcome. I am now very kiln-proud and carefully sweep and hoover it out after I use it!
