By chance I walked into The Stratford Gallery on it's opening day and was greeted at the door by a glass of champagne! The smell of fresh paint giving clues as to how recently the 'open' sign had been turned.
The owners, Howard and Emma Clegg were very welcoming and had on show some wonderful work. Emma is herself a ceramists and produces delicate light porcelain vessels with flowers and leaves decorating the outside.
