On holiday recently, we searched out some interesting potty places to visit. The village of St Jean-la Poterie, in Brittany, has a 1500-year tradition of pottery and clay work. Their two-day “Fête des Lises” was held in a large park and was a festival more like a mini convention than a market.
For the last two months my partner Darby and I have been volunteers at Pilliga Pottery and Barkala Farmstay, located five hours drive north-west of Sydney. Pilliga Pottery is named after the forest park that surrounds us.
