Finally not a lurker !
I have not seen any reference on Clayart to the death a few weeks ago of Janet Hamer and no doubt there are people who knew her would like to know.  She was a great and robust personality and many will know her as the co-author with her husband Frank of 'The Potter's Dictionary'.  Unfortunately she did not live to see the completion of the next update of the dictionary.
She was a founder member of South Wales Potters which was the first regional pottery society in Great Britain and is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. She also was active in the first potters camp which grew to become the bi-annual 'International Ceramics Festival' held in Aberystwyth.
A keen potter and painter she is missed by her many friends.
