    Aston Pottery in Oxfordshire emailed to tell me that they are staging an Auricula theatre until 19th June. Hand-stencilled auricula jugs in varying sizes are being displayed on stepped shleves alongside delicate auricula plants. Jane Baughan, who designs and stencils the pottery, says, ‘Since a very young age, when I picked flowers with my grandmother, I have loved flowers.The auricula is one of my favourites because of its myriad colourways. Several different layers of hand-painting are stencilled onto each piece of pottery and we can build up an extraordinary depth of colour with stencilling.  It is a time-consuming method of hand decorating pottery, and to my knowledge, we are the only pottery still stencilling today.’

    Really pretty and perfect for the country kitchen table…

      That is so lovely and beautifully original to my eyes!

      I grew Auriculas for the first time this year and have totally fallen in love with them!
