A Merry Christmas to One & All.
Well it's Christmas Eve and all is well
in the Barrington Pottery Household.
I haven't taken any pictures of this years decorations yet
but it's a bit like this in our cottage,
this was last years picture.
It's been an Amazing Year
with the best bit being Marion Joining me
in the workshop back in May.
A few people questioned the wisdom of us both working together
but we know each other well enough, and it's been working out well.
Then in June we did our very first
Earth & Fire show at Rufford, it was a great success for us
and I'm proud to say we have been offered a stall again
Then we had the article in the National Trust Magazine
along with us supplying the online shop.
We've sent three orders to the Restaurant in Berlin
and Marion spent three months making 1800 clay figures
with visitors as part of the Anthony Gormley Exhibition
It's felt a bit like we have been chasing our tale all year.
But now it's the Christmas and the end of the Year
and we are having a well earned break
We are closed now until the 14th January.
So we would like to take this opportunity to thank all
of our customers over the past year first of all
for supporting us, but most of all for being patient with us
and making our 2012 our best year Yet.
Have a great Christmas and a very special new Year.
From Paul, Marion and of course Cadbury.
