The Bees are Back in Town

bee 2013There’s a buzz in the Pete’s Pots studio, but the kiln has been cold for days and the wheel is still. The bees are back! Last year the nest in the roof went quiet after a few months and I feared the worst, but  the Tree Bees have returned and are busy busy. Maybe all those honeypots I made had something to do with it.

Take a Dip, Get a Grip

birdbathI make these as bird-baths, the idea being that the crinkly rings give the feathery dippers a grip to stop them slipping & sliding relentlessly into deep water. This one of a batch I am making in stoneware for the Bosham Art in the Garden Trail,  Sat 20th & Sun 21st April. They will be on sale at around £45.
