Wassail Update

The Wassail on Sunday evening was a great success for all concerned
over 400 people attended and over 350 pints of Cider were sold
in a 3 hour spell.
I had made 8 of these small Wassail Cups
that came out of the kiln earlier in the day and they all sold on the night
and I took orders for 10 more.
This is Mathew Applegate, the chap that commissioned the Wassail Cup
and tonight was it's first outing

as you can see all sorts got their hands on it.
and put it to good use
and this was later in the evening, you can see my workshop
lit up in the background.
On Monday we were watching a programme on BBC 2 called
Escape to the Country, where people look to move from a city to the Countryside
They were showing a couple houses in Somerset this week and in one of the houses
was a set of my pots. great to see them on telly.
Looks like it's going to be a good start to the year.

That is really cool, Paul. What a great community event. And the wassail cup looks great tipped up and spilling its cider into a celebrant.

Pottery is the New Yoga?

Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
