August is always a busy time at the headquarters of Australian Potters’ Marks and this year was no exception. David and I packed up our Fifty Shades of Brown exhibition and started to lay out our (exciting) new exhibition so that it would be ready to open on Friday 30 September.

All of this explains why we added only three new topics to Australian Potters’ Marks in August.
