Here’s a date for your colander , that’s it puns over,the Weald and Downland museum asked me to make a colander to replace a broken one. We had planned to go to a steam event there which was two weeks from the request. I got a move on and made two,one plain and one tudor green but the green slip went wrong and it turned out very pale and unsuitable.
When we were there we had a look around their newly re erected cottage Tindalls a lovely new addition,the tiles were natural clay from Burgess hill,Keymer tiles each one was sponsored by someone at a fiver each, they look lovely.
Two days after the visit, I had an e.mail thanking me for the leaky pot and a request for storage jars for Tindalls, I will be part of the furnishings.Will have to get a move on and get the mud out.
Here we have the lovely hewn wide shelf,the adze marks can be clearly seen.
