We have sun today!!  (but also hailstorms forecast....)

The Pirate is busy mowing, and I'm checking emails at a friend's house.   Still no news on the job front, but my pots ARE  selling in Crochendy Twrog in Maentwrog.

This is the shop with the pottery, run by Gill Owen and Trefor Owen.  The even better news is that Trefor is back throwing pots once more (at 76 I think).

So if you are between Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog and see the sign up in the large layby....go visit, it is well worth it.

Half an hour's sunshine yesterday allowed me to mow the lawn too. Raining again this morning, and we have friends arriving from S Africa and Barbados.... Oh dear.

Hello there, I've been trying to track down Trefor Owen as I grew up in the old pottery in Pontrug (near Caernarfon) that Trefor lived in in the 60s. My parents still live there. We were given a copy of a short film made about Trefor and his time here a year or so ago and since then we've been trying to trace him to see if he's be interested in talking to us about what the mill was like when he lived here and maybe he'd like to come and see what changes our family have made to the place since he lived here. It sounds like from your post that you are in contact with him. We only have one contact number for him (01766 590302) which must be an old number as it's never answered. my email is passitonfromthemill at yahoo dot co dot uk and our number is 01286 674934.It'd be so great if you'd be kind enough to pass on my details to Trefor if you are still in touch with him. Many thanks indeed. Amy
