The art and craft of clay is mesmerising, and a regular, Richard Naylor can be found on the Community House deck near the hub of the Market . Richard learned his particular form of clay work while in Japan and is happy displaying his pots and throwing on the wheel, you'll find him at most Markets throughout the year. The different types of things that can be crafted from clay is endless, we can't show it all on the day.. But you might like to learn, It's not just about mud, it's about fire, form and inspiration.

To celebrate NZ Pottery week and more importantly bring greater awareness to the general public about the talented ceramic artists and potters residing in the West Auckland region, Titirangi Potters Club hosted a show. The aim of the show was to complement the traditional pottery display with live demonstrations and many hands-on events, so that both young and old could experience the delights of playing with mud. What follows is a brief journal of the day. Well the weather forecast predicted torrential rain, gales and a cold southerly. So as we set things up on Saturday morning, it was a case of "we have come this far, we'll just have to go ahead and hope for the best. Only Lorraine seemed unperturbed, as she said "I just don't see bad weather being a problem".
