Hello,

My name is Terry Cotter. I’m a potter.

I have been potterising for nearly two decades now. I stock a wide range of ceramic goods in my shop The Potter’s Reel, down here in Lower Swell. The shop is named after my potter’s wheel which goes round and round. Like a reel.

Since my last Column I’ve made some fish. Tench mostly. but there is the odd Perch in there too. They will go in my pond. In my garden. Out the back of my house.

Here are some reviews of some of my favourite bits from the world they call “Art”.

1. Painting

The Last Supper –  Da Vinci’s masterpiece. The last supper I had was a cheese sandwich and a slice of pork pie. Very tasty it was although it repeated on me for a while.

2. Movies

Seven Years in Tibet – Brad Pitt up a mountain. Then in a monastery. He has a German accent. Goes on a bit.

3. Music

Motorhead – The Ace of Spades – You can’t beat a good shovel. Lemming has a great voice. Goes on a bit.

4. Literature

Homer’s Odyssey – Tale about a Greek bloke who goes to war and then comes back after a few years. Set in Greece. Goes on a bit though.

5. Zumba Club

Tomorrow’s Zumba Club will now take place in the Frozen Foods aisle in Spar and not as previously advertised in the World Foods aisle. Someone dropped a bottle of Salsa and Sally won’t get round to clearing it up until tomorrow.

Hello Folks,

My name is Terry Cotter. I’m a potter.

I have been potterising for nearly two decades now. I stock a wide range of ceramic goods in my shop The Potter’s Reel, down here in Lower Swell. The shop is named after my potter’s wheel which goes round and round. Like a reel.

Did you enjoy The Olympics? I did although it went on a bit.

Since my last Column I’ve finished the mug handles I told you about and have now made the mugs. All I have to do now is attach the handles to the mugs and Bob’s Your Uncle!

Here are some reviews of some of my favourite bits from the world they call “Art”.

1. Painting

The Hay Wain –  Constable’s most famous painting.  I always thought he was a Policeman. It threw me for a while when my mate told me he wasn’t.

2. Movies

Die Hard – A bloke wearing a vest kills the bloke who played a wizard in Harry Potter. He can’t have been much of a wizard if he lets a bloke in a vest kill him. Goes on a bit.

3. Music

The Bee Gees – How Deep Is Your Love? – My fiancée went twelve feet deep once. Dropped her engagement ring down the drain you see.  She fished it out with a coat hanger.

4. Literature

Lord Of The Rings by Tolkien – A little lad with Big Feet defeats Evil by throwing his ring away. Maybe that’s what my girlfriend was trying to do all along. Goes on a bit though.

5. Pole Dancing

Thursday’s Pole Dancing class that was due to take place in the Barbers has been cancelled. Nobby has put his back out.

Hello Folks,

My name is Terry Cotter. I’m a potter.

I have been potterising for nearly two decades now. I stock a wide range of ceramic goods in my shop The Potter’s Reel, down here in Lower Swell. The shop is named after my potter’s wheel which goes round and round. Like a reel.

Since my last Column I’ve concentrated on making mug handles. I will make some mugs next.

So, without further ado here are some reviews of some of my favourite bits from the world they call “Art”.

1. Painting

Sunflowers – I like this painting. It has some flowers in a vase. Don’t like the vase very much though. Vince cut his ear off later on. That must have smarted.

2. Movies

Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid – A western set in the west of America.  Goes on a bit though. Has that song in it. The one about rain. Never figured it out to be honest.

3. Music

Chopin’s Polonaise in A flat major – lovely bit of ivory tinkling here. Goes on a bit though. He’s right up there with Liberace in my opinion.

4. Literature

Crime and punishment by Dostoevsky – A Russian bloke commits a crime, gets caught and is punished. Goes on a bit though.

5. Mime

Finally I would like to give a big shout out for the upcoming Lower Swell mime festival. It’s in the Post Office next Wednesday.
