Winchcombe Pottery is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. This exhibition at the Gloucester Guild of Craftsmen shop in Cheltenham features the pottery's current range of wood fired stoneware pots. Also on show is a huge Michael Cardew cider jar with decoration featuring Adam and Eve and the serpent, fired in the old bottle kiln way back in the 1930s.
