On The Wheel

44 years ago we bought the old school, got married and started a pottery.....

Today is our wedding anniversary. We got married in 1976 -  44 years ago. When we were first married, I worked for York Archaeolgoical Trust on a site in Clementhorpe in York - a nunnery, and then a bit on Coppergate where they discovered Viking Age York.  . Gerry spent a few months getting the buildings sorted out - an old school, and converting it into the pottery which was finally opened in 1977.
These photos show the school when we first bought it.

This photo is the first craft fair we ever did - It was at a small village called Warter and they asked Gerry if he could take his wheel along. Look how clean it is!!!! - brand new...
