Thank you to the team of Suncoast Clayworkers for inviting me to judge this wonderful exhibition.

An exhibition of this quality does not just happen. With such a variety of work, it involves a lot of planning and preparation, the final presentation involving a lot of different skills.

My first impression as I walked around the exhibition was the outstanding quality of the work, showing a high standard of technical skill with a varied emphasis on surface treatment and form. Many works displayed an element of playfulness. In the days of “instant everything” it is heartening to see quality technical skills and finishes with an overall thoughtful presentation.

I found that judging the 300 Gm section a pleasure as often the smaller entries are dominated by the larger works. Sadly there are two very exquisite, beautifully made works that I was unable to consider for an award as they had no clay content.

Congratulations to all those who exhibited. It may be daunting as a new clay worker to put your work up for exhibition with that of more established artists so for this I commend you.

There is work in this exhibition of very high quality made by the tutors for Spring Fever 2019 which I hope you will attend. Again thank you Jackie and your team for all your hard work.

I congratulate you all for a most pleasurable exhibition.
