celebrates his 80th birthday this year. He has been making his
wonderful pots at his pottery in Durweston for very nearly 50
years and still digs clay and makes ash glazes with wood from
his own garden.
The Joanna Bird Foundation is currently fundraising for a film
about Richard and his work. The film will be made by Alex Wright
whose work some of you will know from his series of films to accompany
pottery exhibitions at the Goldmark Gallery.
Joanna's website to get involved.
