Several months ago we had to cut down an apple tree in the garden and at the time it seemed such a shame not to save some of the wood – I had a vague idea that wood might compliment the new style of pottery I was working on. Now, with time on my hands, and quite a collection of the new pots, I cleaned the wood and set up a small display. I think it works. It’s earthy and natural.

Who knows when any of us potters will be able to take part in a show or craft fair but that won’t stop us I’m sure.

Some of these pieces will be available for purchase on the Anglian Potters online show beginning Friday May 1st.
