the large pot made by the Korean master was fired up outside but unfortunately it collapsed towards the end of the night...

Check out the Clay Push Gulgong Facebook page for more images of the fun...

Off home and we stopped at the Lue Pottery and spent 2 hours talking with Des about his tool making and running a pottery making his own clay and glazes...

Hi Angela, great to meet you in person too. I was a bit worried about his fire but it had been cleared well before hand and the results were great. Saw one of his helpers busy polishing a finished pot with bees wax the next day.
