At the crack of sparrow-fart tomorrow morning the partner and I will be going to Edinburgh. We’ll check out the wine merchants and, even better, we will go and visit Sarah-Jane Selwood’s studio. She is my favourite cermicist, she has new ideas on a regular basis. You can see some of the pieces of hers we own here. Beautiful, eh? Holding and fondling such beautiful things pleases me in a way I find hard to express. It maybe true that, after silence, that which expresses the inexpressible best is music, but a beautiful bowl does a pretty damned-good job.
