this is a tile panel made from parts of the Poole pottery water feature, it's rare to find pieces that are guaranteed to be made by Guy and decorated by Tony Morris

When they built that they had to do it at a weekend as they didnt want it to interfere with all the visitors. I made a stitched together picture of it in the book as there was no way you could photograph in one go. There is a story behind the design. in the water at base there are pots. They start to climb the wall attracted by the big orange sun. When the pottery was being demolished Clive worked in there taking as many of the tiles off that he could. The mermaid disappeared. Probably taken by the then MD. Clive made a great job of those collages. Unfortunately they were and are way out of my price range. I wonder what will happen to the one in the conservatory on Portland

Who knows what Russel will do. He was never keen of a lot of Guy's work. He doesnt like Rokko Art. He is a master potter but lacks Guy's spark of genius. Assuming he will sell or rent the house out it will have to be emptied. There is still Or was stuff in the loft. I went up there but no way was I moving away from the hatch I did not fancy the quick way down. I cant see him wanting to box everything up. Its a major operation. I imagine Clive would do it if Russel made it worth his while.

Hi Dan Is this a recent purchase ? It looks familiar. Went to Joan's funeral today. It was well attended and she had a really nice send off. I went to her and Guy's house to photograph the front door that I have been through so many times. It was a bit strange not going in to see Joan.
