Here’s a terrific interview with Lisa Hammond who set up Maze Hill Pottery and makes salt glazed pottery. I bought one of her mugs 15 years ago and it became a firm favourite up until the time it was dropped by a housemate and smashed. Although it was a shame to lose it, I was very happy to have had such a lot of daily use from it over the years. Craft is meant to be used and that involves a risk but far better to break something while enjoying it that to lock it away.
What handmade items do you use everyday? Which should you get off the display shelf and start using more?
