Pumpkin jack-o’-lanterns with matching Fat Lava ceramics. The best of the Pumpkins by some length (pumpkin eating a squash) was courtesy of Deiniol Williams who makes wood fired anagama ceramics.

Pots and Pots are very excited to announce that we shall be holding a grand West German pottery sale on Saturday the 30th of November and Sunday the 1st of December. We shall be throwing open the doors to our treasure trove (i.e. our double garage) which is stocked to the rafters with over 1,500 fat lava items.
There should be something for everyone:
- All manner of items: vases, wall plaques, plates, plant pots, candle holders etc
- Huge range of manufacturers: from Bay and Carstens to Steuler and Ü Keramik
- Subtle 1950s mid century design items through to the outlandishly garish decors of the 1970s
- Small (4cm) or large (60cm) vases
- Prices from £3 to £60
We will be opening the doors at 10:00am – but there is no need to rush as we will be on hand to fill any gaps that do appear with brand new stock that we just don’t have space to display!
The sale will be held at 27 Green Lane, Hadfield, Derbyshire, SK13 2DT.
Please keep your eyes on this blog where we will be adding photographs of some of the stock as the sale date nears. If you want any further details please don’t hesitate to get in touch via our email: email@example.com
You can see some photos of a sale which we organised a few years ago here.
Come and join us that weekend for some WGP chat, a few refreshments and to meet other Fat Lava enthusiasts from around the country.

This Scheurich Rumtopf recently featured in a kitchen advert in our local newspaper (The High Peak Review). The form number of this Scheurich Rumtopf is 801. Scheurich no longer manufacture Rumtopfs. More information and recipes for Rumtopfs can be found in this previous blog post.

One of the classic Scheurich glaze decors which was applied to thousands of its vases during the 1960s and 1970s also appears to have made its way onto what I think is most likely to be a British studio pottery piece. The similarity is such that I would assume they must be a copy of one another. Presumably it was the studio potter who did the copying and not the other way around.
