Winchcombe Slipware - First Firing February 2014

Ray Finch Charger Eddie Hopkins Flagon Winchcombe Pottery Cider Jar

Winchcombe Pottery is producing slipware again! The first firing took place late February 2014.

These images were taken in the pottery shop on March 1st, so if you are quick you should be able to get a pot from this special firing.

The slipware compliments the pottery's stoneware range which will continue to be the main seller. The pots look great to me, I'm sure Mr. Cardew would have approved.

Other good news is that you now have an opportunity to work in Ray Finch's old workroom which has been converted into a training area with a number of electric wheels. The potters are running lessons on Saturday mornings and there will be evening classes in the Summer.
