Welsh Folk Museum

On the way to West Wales we called at St. Fagans folk museum. It is a very extensive site and probably it would be difficult to see every thing even in a day but I just wanted to see some of the pots again. I've posted a picture of a wassail bowl. It couldn't have had any more crammed onto the lid. There is even a table in front of the man. I've also included a picture of a money box with a chicken on. It was quite difficult to get photos as there was bright sunlight on the pots. Both of these pots were done at Ewenny pottery which is near Bridgend in South Wales.
The top picture is a wassail bowl I finished earlier this year but I am keen to try another one and make it more exuberant!
Yesterday I got back to the studio as the boys returned to school. They have two days off this week as contractors are demolishing a dangerous part of the school building. So it may be a short week!


  1. Thanks for sharing Margaret. That larger jug to the left of the money box looks interesting, it seems to be almost completely covered with drawings. That whole grouping looks like a great study. I had never heard of a wassail bowl until visiting your site. I found some other pics including the one with the man and table here
    Have a good rest of the week.

  2. That last comment was from me, Ron, I didn't realize Sarah had signed in on my computer.

  3. Wow, I must go and visit that museum. Thanks for posting the picture of the chicken moneybox.

  4. What a fab looking museum. Great to have the pics.
