Betty was a perfectionist in porcelain and her work shows this.
The intricate carvings that covered her pieces were amazing!
I am very lucky to have two of her pieces.

Betty never signed her work, but used stickers instead ..

I feel so lucky to have found one of Betty's sublime trinket boxes.
Darn digital hasn't picked up the colour correctly, as this is the softest pink from copper oxide in a gas kiln..

Many hours spent crafting and carving. Thought you might like these photos of the pieces Mum has on display at home. Unfortunately Dad dropped a box of “the best bits”...

Thank you so much for the photos!!!!!
I knew Betty when she first started potting and was in awe of her work.
Porcelain is quite fragile in the raw state and yet look at what she has done with it.
She must have the patience of Job.
