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

I have been potterising for over 20 years and 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.

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

1. Play

Romeo and Juliet – He loveth her, she loveth him. The families don’t get oneth. They both dieth.

“Romeo, Romeo wherefore art thou?”

“Over here.”

Goes on a biteth.

2. Movies

Gladiator – Antipodean Roman General becomes a slave, cleaves a lot, discovers hair gel, chest shaving and eyeliner before “Echoing In Eternity” (whatever that means) – Goes on a bittus.

3. Televsion

Downton Abbey – I prefer Oily George’s adult version, Down On Abbey. Now has fewer ratings than HMS Victory. God awful dross. goes on forever.

4. Literature

The Naked Lunch – William Burroughs classic slice of Smack Lit. I ate my lunch naked once. Bowl of soup and a crusty roll. Crumbs everywhere. Soup was nice though.

Village News

The William Shatner look-a-like competition was won by Anthea who works on the frozen foods in Spar. Big fan of Shatner during the TJ Hooker years apparently.
