Additionally, Cornwall Bridge Pottery will be formally introducing our partnership with a company called WaterCheck.Biz. This joint-venture is named Terra Water Pottery. There are few things that share a closer relationship than
clay and water. Put together, they not only produce the magnificence, beauty and practicality of ceramics, they also account for the vast majority of the makeup of the Earth’s surface.
