...a pottery in the scrub

Continuing on after the walk to the Sandstone Caves....

in the Pilliga country stands this long-standing family pottery established on 8,000 bushland acres; you can read more of the Pilliga Pottery here.  





Hadn't expected to find they had a wood-fired oven in their restaurant, and fabulous pizzas like this!  Can tell you it was the best.









before leaving ....a caffeine fix


Gum blossoms

Noisy Friarbird in Grevillea

a quirky pottery tree


So you thought I was quiet over the past five days?  Have been "on the road again", (I feel a song coming on), snapping photos and looking forward to getting back into the blogging groove and sharing with you real soon.

Hi Carole... First that pizza looks very yummy ! : ) Then the caffeine fix!

Great pottery, with wonderful designs, and the set up in the shop with the tree branches for legs on tables is brilliant!!
The pottery tree is clever and as you say quirky !!
Thanks for taking us to the pottery shop via your photo's!!

Pretty pottery but the tree is weird. Fire roasted pizza is the best!

What a great place - mind you, anywhere that sells pizza is OK with me.

What a lovely potter's hide-away. Beaut pictures and my favourite is the blue and green vase...about the fourth one down?
Ah I'd love to be on the road again. Did I tell you that I did a trip of 23,000 Km over five months up north? Sometimes I really want to get out there again.
Planning a little escape to the King Valley wine festival next month.
Cheers,
Ros.

Hard to beat a wood fired pizza Carole. You might have to drag me away to do some birding though. Glad to see you grooving again.

That pottery is so amazing! I love pizza, so that looks pretty good to me. That Pottery Tree is really a fun creation. All lovely photos, and thanks for sharing with us!

Yummy looking pizza! Looks like a place I could spend hours at! Did you buy any pottery?

I like the pottery tree. Am looking forward to what you found on your road trip.

Carole M. said...

seems a good pizza is a universal favourite. Thanks for your comments this one. TexWG-the closest fires were at Lake Munmorah (20 klm), started up the day I left when it was very hot and very windy. I kept updated on the news; today is a very threatening fire day for those trying to snuff out the Blue Mountains fires, with more of the same conditions forecast today. Thanks for your concern there Theresa. Karen you asked if I'd bought any pottery? I didn't, though the single vase photo with blue/green design on, was the one item I'd thought I'd like to take home.

That pottery is wonderful! There's some real craftsmanship there. I like the pottery tree at the end!
