I'm getting a great many queries at the moment as to where you can find my charm bracelets and related trinkets - my own fault for not having the two sites properly linked up!
The miniature treasure is kept at www.bethan.bigcartel.com
I'll be sending things using special delivery up until the 19th of December, when I'm going to live in the woods.

In the current (July/August) issue of Ceramic Review you can find an article about the collaboration between myself and Alex McErlain. It was very kindly and insightfully written by Helen Bevis.
"It is and effective collaboration. Both understand clay but from different ends of the spectrum, with Worthington seeing the form playing with her story and McErlain curious to see how his skill interacts with the visual intelligence of her work."
The article is not available online, but to order the latest issue, or set up a subscription, please visit
Cup pictured is from the revisited 'Machine!' series. Collaborative pieces such as this are available to purchase, with prices starting at £50.

The Wallace Collection currently possess a selection of bracelets and pins to accompany their new exhibition.
Boucher and Chardin: Masters of Modern Manners.
'A tea pot and tea cups feature prominently in the background in Boucher’s interior, while drinking tea is the main focus of Chardin’s painting. The common subject of tea drinking is further explored in French and English works of the same period. In England, William Hogarth (represented in the exhibition by his Western Family from the National Gallery of Ireland) takes an ambivalent approach, depicting tea drinking as wholesome but also as a symbol of the dangers of luxury.
While the exhibition focuses on French genre painting and depictions of tea drinking, it also evokes the background of tea drinking through a small selection of objects and books. A gallery trail in the Wallace Collection will guide visitors to objects in the permanent collection, linked to 18th-century tea drinking.'

A little while ago, I had some quite wonderful news. I have been offered a place at the Royal College of Art, on MA Ceramics and Glass.
Over the Summer, its business as usual. I'll be exhibiting and making work in the idiosyncratic manner to which I've become accustomed. Come October though, its all change. My work will always be 'me' but I may never work in the same way again. A slightly sad but altogether edifying thing.

I currently have a showcase at DCA, which will run until 27th April. Please visit www.dca.org.uk for visitor information.
Work for sale includes 'The Ship That Ploughs The Fields' (pictured), 'Double Exposure', 'Baba Jaga', 'I have never seen a Bowerbird...' and 'Jakarta', as well as a selection of bracelets.
Some images of a mural recently completed for Urbis, an exhibition centre in Manchester. Visitor information can be found at www.urbis.org.uk
The mural depicts the communication network that binds the building. It imagines a world on the other side of the radio. A pushing, pulling, errant sequence populated by creatures too too fabulous for their call-sign. One thing impacting upon another to the tune of coded nattering.
Feel free to get in touch if you're interested in commissioning a similar project.
