Summer Arrives in a Crate

It seems a long time ago, but while I was in England this summer I had the great pleasure of sharing some excellent time with a few fellow bloggers. Hannah McAndrew and Doug Fitch arrived at Toff's bearing these fantastic gifts for me! I was bowled over!
I have a wooden crate full of treasure that was shipped back to me recently by Toff and Georgie.
It was full of pots I had made or collected there, a whole bunch of Tiggy's soap for the Emporium at LibertyTown, books, damson and cherry plum jam, and box upon box of lovely tea. But these two fabulous and robust jugs are surely the prizes of the lot. They look perfect amidst the fall foliage.
I spent this beautiful autumn day helping Anna move and then clearing up some fallen trees in the woods beside my studio. Perfect weather...'nuff said.

Hi Dan, Great to those pots on the other side of the pond.
Whilst on holiday last week I found time to read a newly acquired copy of Winchcombe Pottery: the Cardew - Finch Tradition. it was great to read about your time there and really bought the book to life for me.

Ha! Fab, glad they are all there safe. Excellent! I still love my pot of yours it is just behind me in the living room as I sit at the computer typing away. It feels like years ago since we met you, time playing tricks again.
best wishes,
