Museum pots in place

Do you remember the pots that I was making to finish fitting out one of the shops in the museum ? Yesterday I took some more little ones down for the ‘mercers shop’. A mercers shop is where nearly everything is sold, I thought it was called a chandler,I was told by the interpreter that the chandler made candles .

Here are the pots in the shop,they have been covered in waxed linen, the wax is bees wax which has anticeptive properties.

This is the Bayleaf farmhouse in the mist in it’s autumn colours.


About timbartell

I was born in a flat in Lambeth the name of which was, Wedgewood house,China walk estate.I'd forgotten this until recently,it dawned on me the significance of the names after I had become interested in pottery/ceramics.I think of myself as a potter in the most practical sense,making pots for people to use.I have never had any formal training,I took it up when the table tennis class was full.My first flat was in the same road as a pottery centre, Elmwood pottery, the best in London, 18 sessions a week and a real community. I love my craft and bore everyone with it, so am grabbing this chance to bore more people via this blog.There may be the odd interesting item, here's hoping.
