I started playing with clay in 2020 when my wife got me a day’s experience at Woodsetton Pots. Lorraine, who runs Woodsetton, is a great teacher, and so I have been having occasional classes, and I have found that I enjoy it, and it relaxes me. I am under no illusion about my skill level (or lack thereof), and I am not trying to make a living at this!
But, my wife, who gifted me this hobby, started to ask difficult questions.
- “How many pots are you making?”
- “How many pots do we need?”
- “Where are we going to put ALL THESE POTS?”
My latest project is based on some of the traditions and history of the Black Country – Quarry Men’s Cobbles
If you want a pot – let me know! And if I ever make any profits out of making pots it’ll be used to support charities I care about.
