What’s in the workshop at the moment

I have been working on a commission for a large bowl with three caricatures of hares around the outside. This has proved quite difficult because I am working on a rounded surface and not a flat canvas. I am rather pleased with the result.

 

 

We’ve been throwing and turning a batch of mugs in the range of small, medium and large which sell so well with visitors. We call them our ‘comfort’ mugs because they are so nice to hold and drink from.

Geraldine is also making more of the large decorative plates, each being decorated with artwork discussed between the Pottery ‘gang’. Some very attractive ideas have been used to good effect.
