Strange Brew?

These pots really appealed to me!  I just like everything about them: the quirkiness, the design, the glaze and the playfulness!  They are by Mark Heimann.  There is some lovely and unusual ceramics on his site!

  1. I love those pots, and I love your site so much that I am passing on the good vibes: I’ve nominated your blog for the Kreativ Blogger Award.

    • Hi JaneGS Thanks for your kind comments! Hope you enjoyed yourself in Whitby: did you use the steps to get to the Abby? lol! I hope you got to York and enjoyed it as much as me. I am reading your recommended book ‘Daphne’ by Justine Picardie, and LOVING it! I tried to post this comment on your site, but it wouldn’t let me for some reason. I bet you can’t wait to write about your adventures in England and Ireland. I lood forward very much to reading them!
      Kind Regards

      • I wanted to go to York–my brother and sister, both of whom visited the city last year, insisted that I go–but we couldn’t do everything I wanted to…so, I’ll just have to plan another trip! Whitby was my favorite stop–I could live there, and that’s saying a lot as I am a mountain girl, born and bred, but I loved everything about Whitby. We took the tourist bus to the Abbey but walked down the steps to Henrietta Street…my 16-year-old daughter, who accompanied me on the trip, kept on dissing the steps as too easy. We stopped to snap pix of the coffin bench stops and admire the views and make way for the hordes of school groups that were visiting Whitby over the same few days that we did. Also loved Robin Hood’s Bay. Isn’t Daphne wonderful–you should visit Justine’s site at http://justine-picardie.blogspot.com/–she posts interesting stuff, if you haven’t already found it.

  2. Hi JaneGS! Yes Whitby is very special isnt it1 You do get a sense of the fishing community. The air is exhilarating to say the least and the fish and chips are to die for lol! Aw I LOVE Robin Hoods Bay, so steep and quaint. Not a lot going on there or nearby Sandsend, but that’s part of the charm. I have got some Frank Meadowcroft Sutcliffe photoes of Whitby people. he took photos all over Yorkshire. Did you walk through the giant whalebones at the top of Whitby? you must have! A reminder of the past and how they lived. I would love a piece of Whitby jet, but alas, too expensive for me. I will visit Justines site Jane, thanks for that! Next time you come over, try to get to Bath and take the waters, like Jane Austin did! I assure you it’s very much an aquired taste …….lol!
    Kind Regards
