Donyatt Pots

Ivan Bingham dropped these pots into the workshop today
These were the last pots made at the Donyatt Pottery by Doug Back.
They are very small puzzle jugs about 5" tall.
Some of them were still glazed but had not been able to fit in his last firing.
I've washed them down, with a view to glazing them again and firing them.
Base stamp
a signed Piece
on closer inspection the date looks like 1985.

This one looks like it's had some repairs to it so I don't think I'll risk firing this one again.

and this little jug

It feels like such a privilege to have these pots in my workshop.

Time to start planning for the show season.

Show Time is fast approaching it's that time of year when you have to think about how you want to present yourself to the world! ...
