Acquisition of work into Museum Collection

Chelmsford Museum in Essex contacted me recently regarding the acquisition of a piece into their Studio Pottery Collection.

I will be creating a special piece based on my "Nuclear Jug" series. This will become part of the Museum's permanent collection, which already includes works by Joanna Constantinidis, Robert Washington and a piece by Grayson Perry.

I was to say the least- over the moon- and extremely flattered.  I spent most of my student years (and subsequent career)- studying other people's Pots and visiting Museums and Galleries. It's a great priviledge- so I only hope I can do it justice- after all it's going to be on display for a very long time....

More on the progress of this "special pot"- its design- creation- and firing  as it develops!!
