Our welcome desk is looking smart with our latest addition…a new model to explain the journey of clay from pit to pan kiln!

The model was designed and built by a third-year Arts University Bournemouth student on the BA (Hons) Modelmaking degree. Natasha Potts worked to a brief following consultation with the team at Wheal Martyn. She has produced a fabulous table-top model showing the pit and clay works in profile, complete with moving water wheel and illuminated fires under the pan kiln. 

This collaboration has been a great success, allowing Natasha the chance to work for a client, and offering us the opportunity to tap into the creative talents of an emerging artist.
