I don’t know if you knew but Douglas Fitch and I are getting married next week. I know, it’s been a kind of quiet thing really, not many people have heard!
We have been making some collaborative jugs for holding flowers in the church. We had one that we made together a few years ago and of course now that is very special to us and we thought we would use that one in the church along with some more recent pieces too. What better way to express a potters’ love? The one above is one that I made and that Doug has sgraffito decorated. It is 23cm high. It is shown finished in a photo below.
This one is one that I made a while ago and that Doug has eventually decorated, if you want to know the whole story behind that particular one then read here. You might need a packet of tissues though so be warned!
The original collaborative piece and this piece with the potters’ love poem are going to be treasured by us and will stay with us after the wedding.
We have decided however to offer two of them, this sgraffito piece with the love birds and the large slip trailed love bird and leaves jug, for sale in a three day auction, to raise funds for our honeymoon.
Every pot we make, we endeavor to make better than the last, but these pieces are particularly special and demonstrate the best of our combined skills. They are made with a lot of love.
If it is something that tickles your fancy do have a look at the photos in the listings on ebay. I am sure there will be plenty photos of the pots in situ in the church for the service too.
