Pottery has been around for centuries all over the world and in every culture, and is making a popular comeback. The great Pottery Throwdown is returning to TV, so look out for that.
People are more aware and conscious of the environment and how much plastic we are creating every day. In the last 50 years plastic has saturated the planet, from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans. We can all make small changes that help. Maybe by using a ceramic soap dish instead of a plastic one and using a bar of soap rather that a plastic bottle of shower gel. Or using a reusable coffee cup instead of a plastic one.
There is something really rewarding about drinking your favourite cup of tea or coffee from a mug that you have decorated for yourself.
