Sarah was busy this week producing 220 clay hearts (thank heavens for heart shaped biscuit cutters!) This was not a job we would have usually taken on, but a friend in need had contacted us out of desperation with a very tight deadline. Once fired, glazed and individually named, the tiles will act as table place settings at a wedding reception.
An unfortunate piece of workshop planning meant that Jon was in the studio for England’s opening world cup match against the USA. This slight diary hiccup was more than compensated by Lottie and her lovely group of friends who chose Eastnor Pottery to celebrate her 21st Birthday.The girls spent the three hours on the potter’s wheels throwing some fabulous shapes, and having lots of clay fuelled fun…and Jon even managed to make it home in time for the second half! C’mon England!
A couple of lucky children celebrated their birthday parties at the Pottery recently. Charlotte saw in her 7th birthday making ‘Owl and Pussycats’, eating Russian snacks, and dancing to Russian children’s music.
Hannah, her three year old chums, and assorted grown-ups had a lovely morning, throwing pots on the wheel and enjoying a picnic in the Pottery garden.

The 11 gals hailed from in and around Evesham and hired a minibus and driver for their pottery/pub road trip. The weather was perfect and the gals were in great spirits (literally!) enjoying the pottery garden, clay and potter’s wheels in equal measure.
