Anybody interested in a picture of me drinking red wine out of Roger Capron's pyjamas?

It is a made-up word that has been prompted by the letters page in Private Eye. In the "Pedants Column" all the clever people finish their letters with "I would get out more but....." as if we give a flying.... fish. Rooted in dodgy, half-remembered Latin from school 45 years ago, edomuate ought to mean sort-of " go out of your home". This is in reply to you thinking that watching me drinking red wine from R.C's pyjamas is preferable to watching IACGMOOH. I posit that neither is a worthwhile way of spending even one pico-second when considering the limited time we have on this planet.

That's as maybe, but what do you think of the goblets?
I'm getting into drinking vessels at the moment. On holiday this summer I bought two; a Muchelney tankard whilst visiting the pottery, and that is a difficult one to find! I loved the sunken house on the road out there, but I digress: the second I bought in Bideford, having spent an electrifying (to me at least) five minutes talking to Neil Juniper as he was working in the arcade up the hill. God's truth!!!! if you ever want to see a man who knows what he is doing, seek him out.
The Muchelney tankard is much as I expected a stoneware pot to be - heavy, thick but comforting. The Bideford one is so different! Light, colourful and thin, amazingly thin for a terracotta piece, and, to be honest, it is the one I generally pick out for my evening Abbot. This surprises me still. I have loved the Leachs' work for years but Mr Juniper is a revelation and I thank him for just existing.

I have always liked those goblets but the grey is not the best colour generally

There are no greys as such. I have enhanced the colours slightly because of a poor photo but the colours are the ones shown. These are quite subtle in comparison with the other colourway which includes the reds. I had bought these as a Christmas present but the recipient ended up being me as they are too much fun to give away immediately. Perhaps I'll pass them on when I die.... or perhaps I'll take them with me.

I've had this liqueur set for about ten years now but my missus insist that she can never find quite the right place for it in our domestic design scheme.
I have come to the belated conclusion that she might be, what's the word... dissembling.
I bought it because it was the craziest thing that I'd ever seen and , to be honest, hadn't considered its place in our home decor. I don't see it as being by Le Vaucour but I don't know if it is before or after him, or in which direction the influences flow.


It remains crazy, and a complete pig to wash or clean out, every single last piece of it.

As I understand it, he employed throwers and decorators, and this is one of their standard ware designs. Work by his own hand is fairly rare.
