Don't let Potfest in Scotland be cancelled!!!

 We are really hoping that Potfest in Scotland - held in marquees in the grounds of Scone Palace, near Perth, will go ahead still.

It is scheduled to open on Friday 25th to Sunday 27th September.

Every year the organisers run a competition and the title this year is "Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose". Gerry got his entry out of the kiln today - entitled "TRASH FOR CASH".

Over the forty plus years of making pots, we have made lots of errors - some of the pots don't even get into the first firing... We mash them down , recycle the clay and re-use it. His entry is a play on that theme - resuing all the types of pots we have made over 40 years and putting them together to make a large vessel.....
