A couple of weekends ago I went to the Turning Earth Autumn Market. I visited the ceramic studio last summer and was blown away by what I saw on show, you can check out my post on my first excursion here.
If this is your first time coming across Turning Earth, it’s a studio that cultivates craftsmanship in the art of ceramics. It’s open to beginners and professionals who need a place to work and also offers courses which are high in demand! Four times a year the studio is open to the public where members can donate and sell pieces of their work. It’s a great way for makers to get their names out there and also just to find some real gems!
What was interesting this second time round was the work was so different compared to what I had previously seen. There was a real mixture of form and style, clearly some very experienced ceramicists and beginners as well, giving visitors a huge choice to pick through.
Needless to say I bought 5 gorgeous decorative pieces that really feel special (above & below). There is pride in the ceramicist’s work and what they choose to have on display and sell. I feel like my small contribution in purchasing their work will go a long way in supporting their craft business/hobby.
