Tales of the goings on at Hollyford Pottery, near the tiny village of Stockleigh English in Devon, England
Sunday, 22 April 2012
Home again after a punishing schedule and looking forward to getting back in to the workshop in the morning. First job on the list, tidy up in readiness for full scale production. There's much to do, with Earth and Fire and Art in Clay, looming not too far in the future. It was great to catch up with Blogger Andrew, Jon and Blogger Matt Blakely, who came to the opening of the show in Cambridge. The show's on until a week today - I'll be heading back across the country again next weekend to pack up after it closes on Sunday. Yesterday I went down to Porthleven, near Land's End, to play a gig with The Love Daddies. There was quite a crowd there as it was a food festival which attracts 12,000 people - I'm sure we left quite a few folks feeling bemused - I certainly hope so! I met up with my old buddy Frank and his good lady at the festival - always good to see them. Frank and I have been working on more collaborative pieces - this amazing sgraffito work is a jug commemorating the forthcoming Queen's Diamond Jubilee which Frank is currently scratching. I'm sure you'll agree, he's a clever boy.

nice one frank!! I think HRH would be rather pleased with that piece...
My jaw is on the floor right now. That is some amazing sgraffito work! Words cannot describe my admiration for Frank and the astonishing piece he is working on.
Go Love Daddies!
And Frank's piece is AMAZING. What is his tool of choice for doing the scratching?
Wow what an amazing piece! I love all the fine filigree work
really good to see you are doing such fabulous slipware,
That is an AMAZING jug! The jug AND the decoration...
and the band!
I'll post some more pics of the jug later - he's still scratching, it's going to look wonderful if it comes through the kiln ok.
Gill, is that you from the old days in Pilton?
