Etching press

We're trying to negotiate getting an etching press - every home needs one! There's one in Rye we were thinking of trying to get to see today. But really it's been very cold and we didn't make it in the end.

However when I started googling I discovered I like a lot of Rye Pottery, and that it's inspiring another pottery session, possibly coming on very soon.

There was something called 'hopware' that was produced at a place called Cadborough near the end of the eighteenth century. I love the relief design of the springs of hops. Apparently the pots were made from local clay.
