Naughty Not sticky hooks at those angles, believe me I've researched it. I think they were just laid out on a blanket.

Except the first one.

I like to see pottery in a fitting environment, Guy sydenham used to display his nature inspired pottery in his garden & amongst the houseplants in his home, also we heard of a Alan Wallwork pots being used to decorate a French garden which was again the ideal spot

My cabinets have a bit of a shuffle, so I thought I'd add a new picture (Also an attempt to get others to show theirs!).

It's my most uncluttered cabinet Most Excellent

Mainly because my wife has put her foot down and told me if something goes in that cabinet, something must go out Waaah

It's getting harder and harder for me to take anything out of it too!

We've got the builders in at the moment and while I was at the Post Office yesterday Jack the boss moved my display of "mainly teabowls" to the place he had suggested above the stairs. This is the view you get as you come down.

Top right is by Nina Peskett. She is an architect but learnt to pot by attending classes run by Katerina Evangelidou in Farnham. She wood fires using a small kiln near where she lives in Hampshire.

You're just probably a little too far away for S. E. London but they do a good job - they were responsible for the "Pink Palace" that you've visited.

Got this display cabinet from a Hairdresser's salon. Weighs a ton.

There is a BL and an MC in this picture. Can you spot them? Also Chris Lewis, Mike Dodd and Marianne de Trey.

We have found the picture rails from the Futon shop very effective.They screw in and will take a substantial weight.Ideal for Bowls,chargers,large plates etc which take up so much room on a falt surface.

i really don't collect glass - i just seem to have held on to a few pieces. Their natural home seems to be a window sill in the kitchen where they catch the light in the daytime.

I have cats and dogs and an aversion to dusting so most of my pot collection is behind glass. I like to match the cabinet style with the room decoration and the pots inside, my avatar pic is of a very cheap 1950s teak cabinet that I got locally for 14 and shows off early 20th century pots off nicely in my 1930s front room.
Upstairs i have a pair of the glass Ikea cabinets we all like and this houses black and white pieces

I also like to use pots, and have lots of Briglin and Jonathan Chiswell-Jones which I use when friends come for afternoon tea!

And when it's just me...Jan Burgess teapot; Rebecca Callis milk jug; Michelle Freemantle plate and Andrew Crouch mug

Some small pots look nice together to emphasise the variety.

It's good to see you use your pieces Skipposal, I almost never do... except once I used a plate for cup-cakes...no chance of any accidents Happy

That looks really good - nice subtle colourways running along each shelf. Yes, I love using pottery, but only the cheaper replaceable stuff Happy
