I’ve spent a few days in Berlin and had a wonderful time with J. One day we went to a very cool painters café.
I had spotted this place on a previous visit but had forgotten where it was, and was thrilled when we walked past it during one of our city strolls. It’s a café where they sell unfinished pottery, cups, plates, bowls and more and you can buy one to finish yourself. The price includes the use of glaze, paint brushes, sponges, etc. plus the firing of the finished piece in their kiln. You collect your finished work a couple of days later. So J and I spent an entire afternoon painting a mug each. It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
Here a photograph I took while we were painting, you can choose from something like 50 different colours. It’s all self service you just take a tile and squirt a bit of glaze on it, sit down at one of the tables and paint away while having, wine, juice, coffee, whatever you like. The second photograph is and of my finished mug ready for firing.
I cant wait for it to be ready for collection. I’d say I’ll be going back there on my next visit. A piece of pottery for every visit, how about that?
