Richard Batterham 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.

Please visit Joanna's website to get involved.
