When they got back, they claimed they had spent the whole day on my present. I chuckled to myself, because it didn't make sense, but they were saying nothing...
Today I opened it - a big box of pottery shards that they had spent the day gathering on the Thames. A lovely surprise because new pieces always inspire new ideas...

There were some really unusual pieces in there, it's very exciting! This piece is marbled on both sides, but the marbling is inside the clay - as you can just about see on the edge. I have done a little bit of research and it seems to be Victorian. I love it! Like some kind of very old Fordite!
Here are some of my faves:
