Give us this day our daily bread pot.

Do you make bread ? here is a pot I made for bread making just a very sandy clay, fired only once to give it an open texture,which is also what you want from the bread.

The loaf is half wholemeal and half plain, fired in an oven at 200 c for 40 minutes ,the smell is  mouth wateringly lovely and it only stuck a little bit,but will improve with every using.

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.
