Fantastic set of photo's JimLad!!!

It was a fantastic day we had... And as we found out it was two for the price of one, being able to make a smaller rectangles pot while waiting for the clay to dry off.

Loved the link you posted on The Wirrals Facebook page..... 200 photo's is a fair few!

Look forward to getting the pots back. We'll have to post follow up photos to show how they went!,

Thanks again
Bryan

THANKS to the lads from Wirral Bonsai Club that made the special effort to collect all the Pots from Walsall Ceramics last week.

I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone else's turned out. Hopefully we can get members to bring them in for the AGM in January. Then we can take pictures of them all.

For now, heres how mine turned out!!







THANKS

Lovely, Bry. That speckled blue glaze is a really nice one.
