Potfest in the Park 2008

I went to the Potfest in the Park near Penrith yesterday with my SIL. There were some lovely things, most of them well out of price range. As well as having all the stalls selling pottery, there was a themed competiton and these are some of the entries for 'Clayopolis'.
I liked these cheeky chimney sweeps.

Especially, the fig leaf man!

This wasn't a competition entry, but I thought it was a great idea for displaying succulents.

These little houses are from the Clayopolis competition.

Those of us doing the 'house' swap on BF Forum might want ot have a close look!

This sculpture is made up of rings of clay.

And this one was actually called 'Birdhouse in your soul'

Detail from the birdhouses.
The Potfest is held in the grounds of a large manor house and has a lovely walled garden with a herbacious border which was in full bloom. I took loads of pictures, but here are just a few.

This is my SIL, Isabel, in the garden
