2019 Artist: Alex Wilson

If you love beer, or coffee, or whatever...Alex Wilson of Alex Wilson Pottery can fix you up. Here is his two-pint tankard. He also has a 20-ounce coffee mug so big we couldn't fit it in a post.

Alex is a new artist for us this year.

"I make ware by hand for daily and commemorative use that, hopefully, brings some some pleasure in its viewing and use to the owner. Simple, uncomplicated pottery for the common man. Fine hand thrown ware decorated by dipping in coloured clay slips and slip-trailing using the ancient method of the cow-horn and goose-quill."

We're really hoping we can see a live demonstration of something that involves cow-horn and goose -quill.
