3 December 17: A room of colour magic

Once in a while I have one of those colour moments that I know is likely to stick in my head forever. Joy of joys, I had one last week. On a visit to @denbypottery I was taken to an office lined with hundreds upon hundreds of little pots glazed in different colours. The colours on these little pots of loveliness are expertly mixed by Denby’s chief recipe creator who has possibly the Best Job In The World. Some of them make it into production (like on these plates, top left) and some don’t, but each and every one tells a story of ideas, hunches and ‘aha!’ lightbulb moments. Fellow colour nuts @emmajanepalin and @decorbydelali and I virtually had to be prised out of the room, such was the giddy thrill of being amongst such colourful deliciousness. Definitely one for the memory bank.
