Barrington Pottery has never been so busy !
I made this tall jug for the auction at the Barrington Boar
in aid of the local St Margaret's Hospice
We were thrilled when it fetched £170.00
in Total they raised over £3,200. Well done to all involved.
not forgetting our friend Jess from the smokery who made the night such a success
with his brilliant auctioneering.
A new year and our new colours are proving to be big hit.
I must admit it's proving to be hard work keeping the showroom
well stocked, but on the other hand it's a great problem to have.
We are both so motivated at the moment
and I'm determined to spread the love.
The next of our National Trust orders is being delivered next week
this exclusive new colour is proving to be bang on trend.
here they are in production in our workshop
In keeping with our plan of working hard but also giving ourselves
time for some fun
we set off on Valentines day at 8am with the roof down
for a trip up on Ham hill and the Prince of Wales pub for breakfast!
we found out later that the actual Prince of Wales
( Prince Charles )
turned up at the same pub for lunch only 2 hours after we left
how weird is that ?
all we saw was this chocolate labrador!
these pots were in previous posts so I thought I would show
the finished pots.
This bowl was an idea I had whilst I was being sold some old pancheons
that the glaze was falling off in my hands,
the idea came to me at that moment
so I handed them back and walked away.
this one has already sold, the guy said it just spoke to him as soon as they walked in.
so this year we are making new designs
but also making sure we keep plenty of stock of best selling pots.
who would have thought that making such simple pots could be so rewarding ?
I'm back on the Blog again and Why? Because The Chinese have landed on the dark side of the moon? No, because I have time, time ...
OK here are all the elements needed to build the kiln. I had some 3mm ceramic paper left over from building my large gas kiln 2 years ago. ...
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"...
