We are thrilled to be hosting an exhibition to mark 100 years since Adam Dworski’s birth. During Herefordshire Art Week, an exhibition in the cottage and the old pottery will celebrate the life and work of the potter after whom Pottery Cottage is named.
Dworski: A Potter’s Centenary, 9-17 September 2017, Pottery Cottage, Clyro HR3 5SB
Adam Dworski (1917-2011) set up Wye Pottery in Clyro 1956. Exhibition will feature a wide range of figures, plaques, pots in stonework often with majolica glaze, shown in his original studio.
This week we received an advance copy of Under the Tump: Sketches of Real Life on the Welsh Borders by Oliver Balch. The book features Pottery Cottage on the front cover, on the pages of the book, and is even referenced in the title. ‘Tump’ (or ‘twmp’) is the name for a castle mound, and Pottery Cottage is built under the Clyro tump, where a 13th century castle once stood.
Under the Tump will be published by Faber & Faber on May 19, 2016, and it is available for pre-order now. We will copies for sale at Pottery Cottage B&B from May, and of course Oliver will be happy to sign copies for guests!
