Emily Murphy

This is Emily Murphy's blog:  http://potteryblog.com

It is great!  There is just so much in it. A fantastic one-stop resource with hundreds of really well-written posts covering everything you can think of that is connected with ceramics, with stacks of practical advice and links to makers, publications, other pottery blogs.... etc, etc.

I particularly like her interest in pottery 'tools' (a woman after my own heart!) and making her own tools:  http://potteryblog.com/category/how-to/tool-making/  For example, this great little idea for making a non-stick bat holder:  http://potteryblog.com/category/how-to/tool-making/#post-43 - simple to make and it works really well!

And.... she makes great pots too:

Finally, for any other potters out there who are thinking of starting up their own blog, have a read of this: http://potteryblog.com/2010/05/studio-potter-newsletter-a-new-community-of-potters/ - it's quite inspiring.
