Ceramike - Background Information


Richard Batterham lidded jar Ray Finch vase Derek Emms bowl

The 2020 the coronovirus lockdown gave me the opportunity to re-engineer Ceramike.com as a new website - MikesPots.co.uk. Ceramike will remain as a legacy site for the forseeable future but will no longer be updated. It was designed way back in 2002 when most people used Internet Explorer on Windows computers, those days are long gone and we now have multiple devices, operating systems and web browsers, MikesPots site has been designed with that in mind.
