For the past five years, I have spoken here about why I think that using handmade pottery in the serving of food adds so much to the overall enjoyment – “a feast for the eyes, a feast for the mouth” as David Whiting so eloquently put it when writing about our 1st show back in 2012 and now here we are, finding ourselves putting together the 6th Pottery and Food Festival. How time flies!
For those of you who have visited either our show or one of the many Regional shows that take place throughout the year, you will not need me to tell you the pleasure one gets from owning – treasuring, even – beautiful handmade pottery. If you are anything like me, you will also remember where and when you bought the pieces and the pleasure you had in talking to the makers. For newcomers, I should perhaps warn you that it can become an obsession – a wonderful obsession but obsession, nonetheless!!
So, instead of reiterating what I have said before – and as we are most likely “on the same page”, anyway – I will just say “Enjoy the show, enjoy the pots, enjoy the feast!”
