Slip cast porcelain mug with translucent diamond lathe cut surface, by Gavin Burnett

I snuck out from painting walls and sanding window frames yesterday to go to Glasshouse. It is a new two-day art, craft and design fair held in a large greenhouse not far from where we live in Aberdeen. There was a wonderful collection of things on show, but I was particularly pleased to see Gavin. He is the ceramics technician at Gray’s School of Art, and we met when I was doing my short course there. I’ve always liked his work so was glad of the chance to buy one of his lovely mugs from his ‘Make Tea’ range.

PS When adding the link for Gray’s I was surprised and chuffed to find a picture of some of my urchins on their website. I first made them when I was on my course there.
