The 2020 the coronovirus lockdown gave me the opportunity to re-engineer Ceramike.com as a new website - MikesPots.co.uk. Ceramike will remain as a legacy site for the forseeable future but will no longer be updated. It was designed way back in 2002 when most people used Internet Explorer on Windows computers, those days are long gone and we now have multiple devices, operating systems and web browsers, MikesPots site has been designed with that in mind.

This is an upcoming exhibition at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery celebrating the work of two local potteries, Cricklade and Ramsbury. For many years Ivan and Kay Martin at Cricklade and Peter Holdsworth at Ramsbury oversaw potteries that were innovative and commercially influential.

The exhibition which explores their ethos and includes ceramics and photographs from the muesum and private collections is co-curated by Mike Yates, author of recent guides to both potteries. For further details visit the museum website.
