Text Box: Hazel Thomson

My love affair with clay started when I enrolled in a pottery class at The MAC in Cannon Hill. I wanted to know everything and soon outgrew the class. What followed was Bournville College of Art - first with City & Guilds in Ceramics and next, the Art Foundation course which lead to my dream course at Wolverhampton University studying BA (Hons) in Three Dimensional Design - Ceramics with Glass.

 

It was such an amazing opportunity.

I like the rawness of clay, the malleability then once fired, it is a material which can last thousands of years. A small fragment can reveal much about the potter. Each mark is remembered by the clay and once fired, is there forever.
