New Carstens Ankara PotteryPosted: May 8, 2011
This is take two for this post. The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that I tried to write about my gorgeous Carstens Ankara earlier in the week. Unfortunately, the WordPress gremlins were out to play so it all messed up. Fingers crossed for this time round!
These are all new ones bought on the last trip. I really do love the Ankara glaze. It was Stuart at Bygone Times who first introduced me to it. It’s not as showy as other WGP but there’s something refined and elegant about it that really appeals to me.
I’ve never seen an Ankara plant pot before. I just wish it was a bit bigger so that Vernon – the world’s largest Aloe Vera plant - could fit into it.
Now I have another pair:
You must know how happy that makes me by now…
Here’s the whole collection:
I need a new shelf for them!
There are a few variants of the Ankara glaze: I like them all! Still haven’t seen a red or… gasp… a yellow one in real life yet. But there’s still plenty of time yet. Hope you’re having a good Sunday. I’ll be offline for a couple of days until Ofsted have been and gone… wish me luck!
