My Favourite Cornish Clay

Took the opportunity when visiting friends in Devon this weekend to hop over the border to Cornwall and fill up with my favourite Cornish Clay.  The clay pit is shut on Saturday’s but Mr Doble kindly left it on a palette outside waiting for me.  Thanks John!

I look forward to getting tucked in……big bowls are my latest fascintation.  There are five in the biscuit kiln now….two of which will be selected for the wood firing at the UCA on Friday.  Am really looking forward to taking part in the firing and seeing the results.

The weather at St Agnes was gorgeous, the clay pit is in a great location on the cliff tops.  Much more rewarding making pots when you know exactly where the clay comes from, rather than just opening a bag….and even better when it is such lovely clay.

Dobles Clay Pit, St Agnes

Not a bad spot for a clay pit!
