Mike Finch at his wheel. Interview at Winchcombe Pottery, 21/11/13, PART 3

This is the last installment of my interview with Mike Finch. In this part he talks about firing kilns at Winchcombe, from oil to electric, wood and the old bottle kiln which "nearly bankrupt the place" as it was such a pig to fire.

He also offers some advice to aspiring potters: to go for it and not worry about the money. I like this advice and have referred my mother to it (she is quite concerned, perhaps rightly, about the wage packet of the potter). Hope you enjoyed these videos, I plan to do more interviews with potters in the future.
