It's Up - it's Down and it's Up Again.

I took this photo of what is now called the old workshop before I took it all down
and moved it across to the New Workshop.

The room looked a bit sad when I had finished
But it has served me well over the past year, and I am sure I will
never forget the memorable moments during my first full year as a full time potter.
But Onwards and upwards as they say.
I was sat in the New Workshop looking at the new space and wondering how on earth
I was going to have the showroom ready for Customers the next day
When Marion turned up having just finished a day's work.
We had a cup of coffee and set about sorting it out into some kind of shape.
Two hours later and it looked like this.
The stock looks a lot smaller in the bigger showroom
But I do like the plank of Pancheons
it truly is the best way to display them.

The pots are just sparkling in their new home aren't they! I hate to tell you this, but I like the blue one too:)

It does look good. Once my kitchen is in a fit state (several years away probably) I shall have to acquire your recipe for building dressers - they look great.

That's a few hours' work well-spent, Paul. Looks great. And I do think that's just about the right percentage of blue pots.
Congratulations on the move.

Looks great Paul. Very much enjoyed spending a bit more time with you at the weekend. Much fun was had. Good luck with the first day.

Looks great, Paul. I like the boxes for display--don't know if they are old crates or not, but I like the look. I have been re-arranging my space and displaying is a bit of a challenge. I like what you have done.:)

Well done! Your pots look 'happy' in their new space. What a journey you've been on. I can't wait to come and see for myself. Good luck!

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"...
