Urning a place in prehistory

This is a hand-built attempt at making a Glastonbury Ware urn. A reasonable copy that should look good when cleaned up a bit and fired.
This and other replicas are being made for the project at Hengistbury Head, more can be seen at the webpage devoted to it.
I had a great weekend at "Spring Tide", the event staged by the National Trust at Hive Beach, Burton Bradstock. Not as many sales as previous years, but much interest in what we were doing and a chance to make a couple more large urns.
The Launch of the Artwey Open Studios at the NAtional Sailing Academy went very well, together with the unveiling of the Giant Wall, Arwey's 2012 project.
Tomorrow we start setting up for the Upwey Potters' annual exhibition. My yurt will go up in the Village Hall's playground, as a display space for my ancient pots.
Also looking forward to the Dorset Art Fair on 1st & 2nd June at Kingston Maurward.
A busy time ahead!
