When Lady Magnon and I were married, we were still both at college, where, other than the Fine Art dep't, the college also boasted a highly rated Pottery dep't (amongst others).
One day, completely out of the blue, a young potter came over to where we were sitting, and gave us the two pots, above.
'Wedding present', he said, 'congratulations'. We'd never spoken to him before, and were amazed by both his kind wishes and generosity.
His name was Peter Lau. He came (I think) from either Singapore or Hong Kong; his physical features certainly suggested as much.
We've always treasured his gifts, not only because they are attractive and useful, but also because it was so kind of him to think of us. He was a really charming young man.
I've looked him up on Google, but to no avail. I'm sure he must still be involved in Pottery somewhere.
If anyone has an 'All the world's known Potters' book, maybe you could look him up for me. I'd love to let him know that we still use his lovely pots.
