While working in the office with Paula we saw a pair of Sparrowhawks & a Buzzard fly over.
While my colleagues were given a personalised tour of the pottery I spent time searching out some new designs. The centre picture shows the pots after the slip has been applied and drying out prior to firing in the kiln. The other shots show the final products as designed by one of the throwers.
Other new pots incorporate some wildlife - Bees on an Armscote Bee Pot & a Salamander on (yes you guessed correct) a Salamander Pot.
Breaking new boundaries Jim Keeling has designed and produced this Great Warwick Pot using a specially formulated black glaze to create this unique and innovative piece of work. It is a very, very expensive object (which I could easily hide inside) because all the embossed motifs have been painstakingly oil-gilded with several thickness 23.5 ct gold by a Master Gilder!
