    Many of you on here will remember me and the bowls I have arranged on the other forum. Well here we are again with another group buy. I've been in the potters today and we are all go again.

    These are made in Bideford where I live by a potter called Nick Juniper. It's a local family business and the style and colours are very much in his family tradition.

    This gives you an idea of what they are all about. http://www.bidefordpottery.co.uk/

    Each bowl is slightly different as they are completely hand made. They come in the cream and darker honey colour. Wording, you can have anything you like, ATG, Against The Grain or even your name ( up to 15 letters excluding spaces. The pictures above are of my bowls to give you an idea what they will be like.

    Bowls will be £15, and Soap dishes £23 which includes 2nd class recorded postage, packing and PayPal fees. I will also reduce the postage if you buy more than one making sure you only pay the actual postage costs. I am happy to send overseas, and the postage will be amended for your country and what ever you want in the way of tracked postage.

    As in the past I'm not making anything out of this, just providing a source of bowls and dishes, as well as some trade for a local potter.

    Please list your name and what you want be it a bowl or dish, colour and wording. I'll keep this open for a couple of weeks. When we have the full list I will then ask for the money which I'd prefer to be through PayPal. Once EVERYONE has paid I will place the order. It usually takes around six weeks for them to be ready for collection. As everyone will testify I send them out as soon as I get them. No one in the past has had any problems and all of the bowls have been received safe and sound and rather over packed. LOL !

    Are we limited to the cream and darker honey colour? Would be good to have the ATG bowl different

    Well here's the thing, yes you can have another colour, BUT. How he does this is to glaze the dish and then when dried cut away the letters to reveal the bare and darker glaze below. So if say you go with a blue it is hard to see the wording. He only uses a very small dark palette too. These are the lightest colours and the one size that show up the lettering the best. It's all very limited and very traditional.

    Here, obviously
    Would have to be a different design with a handle to tempt me. I wouldn't want something like the last one.

    What about reversed? With the cream glaze bellow with the dark blue on top, so the writing would be cream.
