Secret of pottery making revealed at museum event

The secret of making good pottery is on display at Windsor Museum.

Tracy Kent, the manager at Talents Gift Shop in Church Street set up an exhibition at the museum in the Guildhall on Monday.

Talents sells fine Moorcroft pottery among other things and the centrepiece of the exhibition is a 100 year old piece made by William Moorcroft in 1913.

Other pieces illustrate the seven different stages that have to be gone through to create each item.

Tomorrow, Moorcroft's Managing Director Elise Adams will join TV antique expert Eric Knowles and author Neil Swindells - who has written a biography of William Moorcroft - at the museum. The free event celebrates the centenary of Moorcroft pottery and runs from 10am to 5pm.

The exhibition will continue for two weeks.
