I love pottery, especially items that are handmade. One of my favourite lines right now is from Mud Australia. The pieces are gorgeous, and just thin enough. I think I’ve always secretly wanted to be a potter. Having a great kiln and firing and glazing pieces at leisure would be a dream.
When I was away on holiday recently, a friend of my parents (who makes his living doing this very thing) invited my family over for an afternoon at his studio. What a magic spot- we were in the mountains of Mexico, surrounded by birds and orchids, it was perfect.
Now home and back to reality, I couldn’t help remembering a piece of pottery we put up on the site not long ago. A lovely wine cooler, so simple in design with a modern matte finish. Hmmm, maybe I should have kept it for myself.
