In May 2008 I was awarded the SAC Crafts Residency at Covepark, allowing me to spend three months developing new work for the exhibitions Making Spaces and Objects of touch and travel… Towards the end of the residency period a seminar day was held for a group of invited artists, curators, researchers and writers which incorporated a studio tour and round table discussion exploring the current provision for ceramic activity in Scotland chaired by Amanda Game.
