The annual Auckland Studio Potters’ Fire and Clay exhibition and The Big Clay Day Out event have both been cancelled. Some wood, salt and gas firings are beginning to take place at ASP with potters following Covid safety guidelines and the studio is being used with a strictly limited capacity. This will be a quieter December at the centre than the bustle of previous years.
