In a previous incarnation - leastways it seems that long ago - I was a potter. Actually, like most things in life, it was not as simple as that. To cut out all the detail, for many years, until it was sold in January 2005, I had interests in a pottery on Lewis. It made the widest range of pottery of any pottery in Scotland. One day I'll do a proper post on the pottery and its history on Eagleton Notes. One of it's unique ranges of pottery was a marbled ware called the Hebridean Range. Last week Wendy was in an op shop (opportunity shop = charity shop/thrift store/goodwill) in Napier when she saw an egg separator made by the pottery in that range.
