Imagine Gallery

Here's a crazy pot which is going to my next exhibition at the Imagine Gallery in Suffolk, opening on Sunday 24th August. I'll post more details of the show later.




Pots like this were used in the houses of medieval England, to keep the dust down on the earth floors. I can't imagine my ones ever getting used, but they're good fun to make and some folks seem to like them. Medieval pots are so full of character.

One of the bowls in the World of Interiors Mag is going to be in the Imagine show too, one bowl's going to My Auntie Daphne for her eighty-first birthday and the other to my brother tomorrow for towing a caravan to a site in South Devon for us, because tomorrow we're off for a rainy week by the seaside - woohoo, happy holidays!!

Very cool pot.

I hope you have a nice holiday and it doesn't rain the whole time.

I'd love one of those, it would be great for damping down the floor of the kiln shed at the end of each firing. So much nicer than the plastic watering can I use just now!

I always thought those were watering cans for plants.
