Michael Cardew

I have been reading Michael Cardew's biography, "The Last Sane Man" by Tanya Harrod which reminded me of his visit to Hawke's Bay and short stay with us in 1968.  He introduced us to using iron slip and is seen here decorating one of his jugs in our workshop.  He demonstrated in Napier and the pots he made there were finished and later glazed and fired at our pottery.  Most of the pots went to the H.B. Museum and Art Gallery but Michael said we could keep this jug for doing the glazing and firing.
