An appointment with the Crown

I don't normally leave visiting exhibitions to the last two hours of the LAST open day, but such has been my schedule recently. I press-ganged my friend Jane and we hot footed down to the City Gallery to view a retrospective of Crown Lynn pottery. Crown Lynn is THE name in Kiwi ceramics. Sadly the pottery no longer exists, but there is a serious revival happening amongst the younger generation. It is collectable, and more importantly, retro.

Oh and we stopped in at La Cloche on the way home for some post exhibition sustenance. Two hours very well spent.

Beautiful ceramics - and very fitting to finish the day at La Cloche.
