This past weekend was spent in Franschhoek, which is a village in the winelands about 80 kilometres out of Cape Town. The weekend of the Literary Festival - lectures, panel discussions and lots of red wine - also the Andrew Walford exhibition at David Walters Studio, and the launch of a new book called A POTTER'S TALE IN AFRICA which is about Walford's work. Both Walford and Walters , stalwarts, are of the school which celebrates Leach and Anglo-oriental ceramics..a rare occurrence these days in South Africa, when by now the local masters, Hymie Rabinowitz and Esias Bosch have passed on, and most youngsters might assume 'reduction' to be a kind of balsamic vinegar!

The general hype around the forthcoming soccer world cup must surely be rubbing off on me...inspired by what I made last week for the Isonke exhibition, I have now done a range of plates depicting soccer players in action..I find it quite exciting entering this world which is completely alien to me..
