Revised Pottery Workshop Counter

I found this week chalk board at the Taunton Flower show
the other week.
I decided to make some changes to my sales counter
to try and clear my desk of clutter.
So I put this up with three shelves behind it.

we had also picked up this counter bell at an antique shop
a few weeks ago.
I'm finding that when I get engrossed in making pots
people find it hard to gain my attention, when I am
" In the Zone" so to speak.
So I put this on the counter.
Today I have been busy making Garlic pots
and the lids for them.
when somebody rang the bell
and made me jump out of my skin.
I hadn't even noticed they had walked in.
So I revised the note.
so that I don't jump out of my skin on a regular basis.

That bell would do the same thing to me, Paul. But mostly because I'm so NOT used to people coming here to the shop.

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"...
