Mistress Honnoria just sent me this link, the Cooking Vessels section is

particularly interesting.  Not bad prices, either.





The cooks might want to look at this site.  The stuff looks good from here.

Many of those forms look very close to what ours would have.  Let me  

know what you think.

He does good work.  So does my apprentice, THL

Artemesia di Serena.  Here is her website:



for those in Lochac, here is the website of

Master Alex the Potter:



Both are currently in Caid, but will be leaving

soon for Estrella War on Tuesday.


I can't find a website for him, but Master

Hroar Stormgengr of StarHammer Arts Magickal

from MidRealm does great reproduction pottery

I forgot to mention that John Hudson's pottery is

featured at Hampton Court and a number of other

palaces and houses such as Barley Hall in  York.

My apprentice, THL Artemesia di Serena, makes aquamaniles in the shape

of cats.


You can contact her here:

mneumark at hotmail.com


or check her website:



She lives in Caid.


Her primary Laurel is Master Hroar Stormgangr. He also makes aquamaniles.  However, he is having another hip surgery soon and I doubt that he will be taking commissions for a while.  However, just in case he has some in stock, contact him here:

hroarstorm at verizon.net


He lives in the MidRealm.

I met a lovely lady merchant at Gulf Wars selling the usual array

of mugs and dishes and I half jokingly asked her if she had any

pipkins. Not only does she have pipkins but also little skillets,

pots and other goodies for cooking in. I'm not sure of her

prices but I did get a card and promised her I'd post the info

on the list. She's more than willing to work with customers on

what they would like.
