I was demonstrating my painting of tin-glazed ceramics and noticed that one of my visitors was watching me keenly. Customers who are that interested are often evening-class potters.
“Hello. Do you make pottery yourself?”
“No, I make brushes.”
“Really? Who do you work for?”
“A S Handover.”
“What a coincidence. I always use your brushes.”
“I thought so. That’s a 2115, isn’t it?”
“Blimey, I came out on my day off, and I can’t get away from work.”
