Contentment is a wealth which is never exhausted.
Eight potters show up. Considering the problems with the dispatch of the invitations this is a reasonable turnout . Every couple of hours Angus is sent out of the house and instructed to 'mingle' and shake hands . '' You don't want to get a reputation as being standoffish " says 'the font'. Listening to a wild eyed lady potter in an orange bandanna wax lyrical about her ash glaze ( "Would you like to hear how I make it ?" ) Angus can't help but think that getting a reputation for standoffishness might be no bad thing.
A visiting Texan god daughter is happy to carry back a series of artisinal mugs with faces. Bob and Sophie are just happy. On one of our outings Madame Bay slips them a little grilled sausage.
