THANK you for your info on the "Pig on the Wall." I have forwarded it to the potter John Bordeaux on St Mary's, Isles of Scilly.

I bought "The Pig" about 20 years ago during a visit to friends on the island. I saw it in his studio and immediately said to myself: "That is the Gornal pig!" A one-off, as most of his work is.

On the islands he is known as "The Alchemist." I have called John and he is delighted. He is soon to go into hospital and I am sure this will have perked him up no end. It is now"The Pig in the Kitchen" and admired by all.

Richard Hatton,
