The idea of this blog is to share ideas for using hand-made pots to serve good food.

Eating with friends and family is one of life’s greatest pleasures. I hope to show how the warmth and character of hand made ceramics can really enhance the pleasure of cooking, serving and eating food.

This blog will include pots from other potters as well as my own and recipes for the food which I enjoy, hoping that you will like it too.

Casserole Photo

This is a photo of one of my small casseroles.  I am very fond of this green copper glaze, especially when it gets quite hot in the kiln, as it takes on a lustrous quality.  It is hard to photograph, though, as it is so shiny.

The decoration is done with finger wipes and a comb made from a rubber rib, cut with rounded points.

I am going to Japan this week.  I will be exhibiting at Gallery Roola in Nagoya from March 13th to 25th with Peter Seabridge who lives in Japan and Ruthanne Tudball, an american potter from the UK.  We are also exhibiting in Fukuoka at Gallery Shozando, from April 1st to 7th.

I am sure it will be a very inspiring trip, both from the point of view of pots and food.  I am planning to take plenty of photos for the blog.  So watch this space!  I am not taking my laptop, so probably won't post until after April 9th when I return to Devon.
