We are very pleased to say that Saffron Walden based Rockwell Pottery now has a page of fabulous pargetting-based ceramics for sale on the TIC e-shop:
The range includes brooches, plaques and vases. Each item is hand-made by Ian Evans, and is hand-stamped with a pargetted Saffron crocus, referencing some of the designs on our town's most iconic buildings.The larger items are click and collect only, but the brooches do have a postage option.
Pargetting is a decorative plastering applied to building walls. The term, if not the practice, is particularly associated with the English counties of Suffolk and Essex. You can find out more about the technique and its local associations here: https://www.visitsaffronwalden.gov.uk/pargeting/
