A lovely friendly event run by Pat Fuller of the Three Stags Heads, in the Derbyshire Dales not too far from Chesterfield. Its all about the table - about 50 potters with their tableware and small scale food producers. My most popular items were my noodle-soup/soup/stew bowls; quite large and deep, ash-glazed inside and ash washed outside. I mix quite a bit of gathered gritstone grit into the clay for these bowls and sponge the outsides when leather-hard to reveal the grit. This gives an interesting surface and good feel to the bowls.
Next years potsandfood event is 12th and 13th September... see www.potsandfood.co.uk
