I was inspired while watching The Great Pottery Throwdown to make a picture of the Gladstone Pottery Museum where the series is filmed, with the iconic bottle kilns that Stoke-on-Trent is famous for.

Shop now open again
I’ve now reopened the online shop, and I’ve also now got a cabinet with some of my stuff for sale at Dagfields in Emporium 7 for anyone in the area.

I’ll be doing a couple more Makers Markets before Christmas. The first one is the Uttoxeter Makers Market (my original home town) on Saturday October 22nd. After that I’ll be doing one at Trentham Estate, on Saturday 26th November. These markets are great opportunities to treat yourself or to buy gifts from one of the myriad stalls.
