I have worked at 4 of Stoke-on-Trent's museums:
- Gladstone Pottery Museum
- Chatterley Whitfield Mining Museum
- Ford Green Hall where I also lived (my husband came too)
- Spode Museum

As former Curator at the Spode museum I relished the wonderful opportunity to immerse myself in pots!

I am delighted that this blog has been accepted by the UK Web Archive which preserves selected UK websites. By 2016, I found, to my astonishment, I have had over 1 million visitors to this blog.
I have spoken at home and abroad on many of my favourite Spode subjects.
