Packing up this is the best of what we made. A new shape inspired by the simple “Handa”cooking pot combined with the start of a niche inspired by all the days of temple visiting and visiting country people’s homes. We combined this with the favourite London studio current activities and now it sits in the little kiln they installed for us … we left it damp and it it needs to dry. .. hoping one of the fabulous organisers or assistants connected with the event will bisc fire it. The sure thing is the gat the influences of this trip will evolve in our kinds and emerge as time passes. What a time we had. @indianceramicstriennale

60 kids…or even 70 kids through the studio workshop today…we made the base pots all week with a clay we didn’t know… possibly 5% grog in Jaipur body, and the kids made elements we added. 2 Government schools and a private school. The Akshara foundation of Mumbai funded my flight here for this specific project. Brilliant kids. Let’s hope the pots dry ok and are fired by the lovely students and potters we have met. The intention is to get the pots back to the schools. #aksharafoundation @mary__o__malley did the throwing and the fab @miray_mehmet_fontanelli @annabarlowceramics were constantly there as I led the introductions. It is so fulfilling to work with the government school kids especially who were the sweetest ever. We have been so busy we have hardly had a chance to post on insta, but plan to make up for it soon. #kidsworkshops @indianceramicstriennale

The Akshara foundation of Mumbai funded my flight here for this specific project within the Triannale….. the sale of one of my pots in NY earlier in the year funded the rest of the team. Brilliant kids in the workshops. Let’s hope the pots dry ok and are fired by the lovely students and potters we have met.

Chilling out half way up the steps to Jaipur’s Amber Fort. This guy was so good with his simple instrument. Sat with him alone on the path and within seconds a group assembled. Not a moments peace…. but then today is Krishna’s birthday. Lovely day. #jaipur #amberfort #indianfolksong

Jolly times. Do listen. I’m in India with some of my team, and we are having a little holiday before visiting the ceramic event in Jaipur. India has changed in many ways, developing fast, but so many things remain timeless and unspoiled…. I am so pleased to find it is still the wondrous place deep in my heart, full of magic. It’s an honour to be here, and to see it through the fresh eyes of my team have never been before. Today we set off bus away from the Aravalli hills, towards Jhodpur….
