Having been to Lincoln to The Collection, we found that we had time to wander. Lincoln is a splendid city with an amazing and visible heritage. We went to the Brayford Pool for coffee and then up Steep Hill to check out some well known shops.
Lapid Art. This type of shop is like a magnet to me and I have purchased fossils from here in the past. My specific collections are so well established that I seldom find anything I want these days, but the joy of seeing such fine fossils is not to be missed.
Just a little way across the street is The Pot Shop. You need to persist to find it as it is well hidden behind the main hill at Christ's Hospital Terrace. Andrew MacDonald is an exceptionally fine potter specialising in ancient pottery designs and styles. We have a couple of his pieces from years ago, so it was a special treat to visit his workshop and purchase a few bits. Rosie had a jug to complement an earlier purchase and I had a pot similar in form to typical bronze age material to add to my stone age collection.
The pot is a pleasing replica with an authentic soft fired finish that is virtually impossible to achieve in a modern electric kiln.
