We all enjoy a wedding! The romantic “I do’s”, the confetti, the bubbles, the party…..the chance to dress up and wear something not splashed with clay (woohoo!)
My sister got married recently and instead of toasting with champagne, they wanted everyone to toast with shots of a particular cocktail that they both loved drinking at parties. I was dispatched at that point to come up with a design. With style and simplicity in mind I came up with a few prototypes and a simple cylinder with a single line on the outside was decided on. Their colour scheme was anything goes, the more vibrant and varied the better. So, although the outside decoration was kept at a minimum, the insides were glazed a rainbow of colours. It was exciting to open the kiln after the glaze firing and look down into them all!
On the day, the ‘shot pots’ as they became known as, were set out at the dinner settings and everyone toasted the happy couple with them. The guests were invited to take theirs home as a wedding favour so now there are wee ceramic shot pots dotted around Scotland, down in London and over in Spain. Wonder where they’ll turn up next?
