Bendigo Pottery










Bendigo Pottery are Australia's oldest potters, so there's lots of history here. I wasn't inspired enough to buy anything, I think they are making pieces for the mass market with rather run of the mill things like coffee mugs all the same boring colour and their Commemorative Plate celebrating 150 years was just plain awful, I think they must have sacked anyone with an ounce of artistic talent a long time ago.

But the potter at work today was happy to help the children get started on a piece of clay and had the patience of Job.
