Certificate of Merit

 

 

I received a certificate of Merit for one of my Rocky Pot this week, whilst exhibiting with the GSA in Painswick this week, one of many awards given out by the group and my piece was chosen by a guess judge Rodger Jones who works on BBC programmes such as Blue Plant.

As you can probably tell I could not believe I received such an award
