The first is Somme Survivor, made for an Arts Council exhibition, and inspired by my great grandfather, Sylvester Sherriff, who saw action at The Somme and later served in a tunnelling regiment for the remainder of the war.
The second is my chess set, made purely for fun and as an excuse to make sheep pawn armies.
Both pieces will be on display in my studio at The Hearth (NE15 0NT) for the Open Studios and Contemporary Ceramics Fair on 29th and 30th April. Why not come along?
I'll be leaving The Hearth at the end of May and will, once again, be based entirely at my smallholding workshop. Visits will be possible, but only by appointment.
