  • meet and talk to over a hundred potters
  • buy everything from sculptures to egg cups
  • browse trade stands selling tools of the trade
  • support the next generation of potters on the campus stands

Smile and Wave 3rd May - 3rd June 2013 Portugal

Affordable Art Fair Logo  

Arriving in Castelo de Vide on a bright sunny summer's afternoon almost twelve years ago, I was struck by the beauty of this hilltop town. It's views, the walls and castle and, despite the disruption and noise from its centre, where machines and industry toiled shifting sand and cobbles, renewing it's market square, I felt I had found a place of peace. As the sun met the horizon and the shadows lengthened, I found myself in a bar, where I dreamt one day of having an exhibition in this glorious town.

The timings of this event have kept pace with my growing attachment to Castelo de Vide. To live abroad, a guest in another country, there seems to me a greater need to behave with respect and good manners. ''Smile and Wave'' is quite literally a method I've used to communicate that sentiment. This exhibition also gives me an opportunity to show a little more of myself; my profession, and, more importantly, a chance to say thank you to a community who have, and I hope will continue to make me feel so welcome.
