Pottery made by ceramic artist Jon WilliamsPottery vases by Jon Williams at The Verzon Hotel LedburyThe Verzon Hotel near Ledbury purchased a selection of my musical pots to use as centre pieces on the restaurant tables. The Verzon is committed to using local suppliers, whether thats culinary ingredients or pots for the table.

I think the vessels look really effective planted up and the colours really complement the existing decor. Good work guys!

hay balls at Craftplay Bilston wolverhampton Annemarie, Corrie and myself had the opportunity the other day to try out some prototypes with the Nursery children from Loxdale Primary School.

Annemarie presented the children, staff, parents and volunteers with these rather lovely hayballs as well as the chance to make lengths of hay rope.

Corrie had been busy in her studio making a set of exquisite wooden tools and combes for the children to explore in the sand.

The session was part of the brilliant and ongoing Happy Museums project exploring Art Galleries & Museums and well being. We three artists have been working with Craftplay at Bilston Craft Gallery in Wolverhampton.

Later on in the session and with the addition of sticks, the rainbows transformed into a pertilla of yachts.

Here are a few more examples Jon the Potter’s work in Early Years.
