We are a group of friends who meet weekly. We work mainly in clay, but also in wood, stone and plaster. We are of mixed ability, with some who went to Art College or university, and some who have learned their skills on the job. We call ourselves ClayPlayers, to emphasise a joy in our work, rather than taking ourselves seriously.
