Last month I asked Hannah if she would mind doing a bit of pottery shopping for me at the Hatfield show. She was kind enough to pick up two pots for me made by the potter Jean-Nicolas Gerard. He lives in France and I love his pottery.
I had my breakfast in this sweet amber bowl of Jean-Nicolas'.
Hannah also picked out this oval jug for me. It's a great, squattly little pot with a very nice spout and thick comfortable handle.
I love the way Jean-Nicolas handles the clay. Very casually, with attention to detail. Not fussy with bold lines and marks. I also have a small cup of his that I got a few years ago. Hopefully I'll visit him someday at his home and studio.
