Truly revolting pottery
9:00am Friday 12th October 2012 in News
POTTERY inspired by the revolting dishes in Roald Dahl’s The Twits has gone on show in Ledbury.
The horrible items are in the window of Priory Dry Cleaners, The Homend, until the end of November.
They were made at a workshop held by Eastnor Pottery at Eastnor Castle.
Jon Williams, of Eastnor Pottery, chose this year's theme because a theatre performance of The Twits was on at the castle. Children and adults made plates of wasps, snails and spiders, bowls of rotten fruit, rancid cakes, smelly sardines and of course ‘wriggly spaghetti’ made from worms.
Mr Williams said: “Everybody embraced the theme and made some truly revolting pottery. We’ve ended up with putrid-looking pizza and maggot infested fruit.”
