뻘e new salt kiln is almost ready for its inaugural firing. Removal of the arch former is the source of much discussion but some clever kiwi ingenuity will take care of that I have no doubt. I am sure there are already pots out there desig- nated for the first firing. A ceramic tile with all the names of the kiln building co-workers is being prepared and will be affixed to the kiln itself once it is com- missioned.

ASP extends a warm welcome to Eun- kyung Choi who is a visiting potter from Korea. Eun-kyung is assistant professor at Ewha Women’s University, College of Arts and Design. Eun-kyung travels overseas during her vacations visiting various arts institutions. Earlier in the year she met up Jeng-daw Hwang who spoke to her about New Zealand and hence her visit here. While at ASP she has been experimenting with Southern Ice porcelain. Eun-kyung works in a variety of materials including clay, stain- less steel, marble, glass, resin and ferrous steel and is currently writing a book about casting in a variety of media. She returns to Korea in late July to prepare for her students graduation and to get ready for her own solo exhibition in Seoul in October.

Renton Murray recently returned to us from his adventures in Minnesota having a very successful time from both the potting and photographic perspec- tive. 뻘e recent slide evening presented by both Renton and Anne Hudson drew a good crowd. Anne’s pictures of Oman gave an excellent insight into her time there. Both presenters made it clear to the audience that not only are they great potters but have a keen photographer’s eye as well. Many thanks for a great evening.

Just a reminder that Garth Clarke’s presentation at the Auckland War Me- morial Museum is coming up on Satur- day July 15th. It would be great to see a good turn out for this event.
