On the bottle oven art trail.

I delivered my varnished bottle oven planter to the BID Art-trail today. Here’s the photo to prove it. See their website : https://thestoke2000.co.uk/artisan/?v=79cba1185463

I don’t think my photo is on yet but there are some really good images of around fifty bottle oven planters.

There is enough space in the top of the planter to fit a small pot. I think once the art trail display exhibition is over and I get it back I will plant it up with a strawberry plant or some trailing lobelia.

Wooden bottle ovens?

I have just got involved in an Art project. #theStoke2000 project. Artists are being invited to collaborate in painting wooden bottle ovens. These can have plants put in the top of them to use as planters.

Each artist will be producing an image that relates to Stoke on Trent and they will be used as part of a local art trail. I’m thinking of painting a plaque from the Falcon Pottery Works which is just round the corner from where I live. I think I need to get some more paints before we go into lockdown again. When it’s finished I will post a picture of it.
