The Pumpkins are one of my favourite things that we make. If you haven't seen them yet....
Halloween is coming upon us very quickly and these are proving as popular as ever. So If you want to get your hands on them they are available at Dedham Arts and Crafts Centre or Creatively Crafty in Manningtree.
The pumpkins start out as a pinch pot (I will try to take some photos at some point of the potter making something like this) they are left to dry out until leather hard (so not fully dry but dry enough to hold their shape) and then carved just like a real pumpkin! They have a hole at the back to put the candle in, and are painted yellow inside so they have a spooky yellowy orange glow when the candle is lit
The Gourd is painted green inside and looks amazing when lit!
We also have some mini pumpkin Tlight holders which are 2D pumpkins and perfect for putting on the table for your Halloween party. You can see them lurking unlit in the top picture under the stand with the large pumpkins on.
The potter has returned from her holiday, confirming my belief that Stoke on Trent is the centre of the UK. It doesn't matter where she goes on holiday she always manages to come home "via" Stoke on Trent!! It just happens to be the "home" of pottery and the location of one of our stockists. So yes that means she went shopping!!
Just as well we are doing lots of shows in November......
