exhibition at the Long Room Gallery in Winchcombe shows early
earthenware pots from St. Ives and Winchcombe alongside the Devon
slipware sthat inspired both Leach and Cardew.
The Long Room Gallery is in the centre of the
delightful Cotswold town of Winchcombe and the exhibition is open
until November 28th, but closed on Sundays. If you do get a chance,
I urge you to make the effort to visit the exhibition as there
are some scarce and unusual pots to see. The huge green bread
crock by Michael Cardew shown above is an amazing pot, how it
even survived the firing 80 years ago was a minor miracle.
Ray Finch's Winchcombe pottery is close by and
Toff Milway's Conderton Pottery is just down the road so there
are other attractions to make your trip worthwhile.
