Bread Crock

This Bread Crock has been finished for some time
But I wanted a wooden lid for it.
I had one made, but I wont show you that one.
Darek from my evening class made this one for me

Just how I wanted it to look.
and it fits perfectly.
This crock was for an order, but I'm going to make some plain ones.
I wondered what you thought.

I'm taking 10 pots down to Bovey Tracey today
for the WestCountry Potters Stand
at the Contemporary Craft Fair that's on
Friday 11th, Sat 12th & Sunday 13th June.

That's a first class lid for a first class crock. Well done.
Enjoying your broadband in the studio yet? I have my laptop in the workshop most days for streaming radio, I do get distracted on the web from time to time too :-).
Have a great day!

I love the wooden lid on the clay pot. I was introduced to the bread crock concept by Dan Finnegan and Phil Rogers. Not a familiar concept around here. Dan's got a beauty made by Clive Bowen some years ago and I love the whole idea. I do like the concept of a wooden lid, if only so that a fairly rough put-back of the lid won't result in cracking or chipping of the pot.

I love the wooden lid on the clay pot too. The whole mixed media thing really works here, I can just hear the sound it makes as it clonks back onto the crock.

The bread crock is lovely and the lid too - the colours makes me think of having a big mug of frothy coffee with that bread...and jam. make some more!

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"...
