Except for the fact that it is a blue flowered print, I imagine the tea cosy I use would look rather like one of those Russian fur hats. It's about that shape.

WHAT??? As a working potter I wish to express my outrage at the very existence of such a thing as a tea cosy! A teapot is the potter's ultimate means of exploring the subtle and elusive interface where art and functionality meet. A tea cosy may enhance a teapot's functionality, but it negates the pot's artistry. Let Aunt Mathilda reserve her knitting skills for tobogans and baby booties. If your tea gets cool without a cosy on your teapot, you're either using too big a pot or you're just not drinking fast enough!

You potters should work together with the crafters of tea cozies to create designs that are both functional and enhance the aesthetic qualities of each other's art.

I am married to a potter and would not dare to criticise the skills of any of them. But tea pots - no matter how wonderfully crafted - just do not sit on your head quite so well as a good tea cosy.

As far as I am concerned wearing them is the ONLY use for tea cosies. But then again my favourite cup of tea of the day is the one Mrs G makes in the pot at 6am. By the time I get out of my pit at 7:30 it has gone stone cold and brewed for that long you can use the tannin to strip varnish. Pour it in a cup and then microwave it. Who need to keep it warm? ;-)

I eschewed tea from the age of 11. I decided I didn't like the taste. Since then I've confined myself to lemon tea, assorted instant fruit teas and a yearly cup of Earl Grey.

Consequently, no tea cosy.














But I bet I could find one if I tried hard enough...

Topsie,

In Oz we have "stubby" OR "stubbie" holders which are usually made of thick rubber in a cylindrical shape, often with a base and you put your "stubby" i.e. 375 ml beer bottle into it for just that purpose - to keep it cold when the weather is hot.

The majority of stubby holders have "witty" (i.e. usually crass) sayings on them or funny pictures. Another souvenir item to look for while travelling.

If you do a search on Google.com you'll see lots of pictures. And by the way they are called "stubbies" because they are *small* bottles. There is another size smaller than that which are called "twist tops" by the beer distributors but better known as "throw downs" because you can throw them down your throat in one gulp, supposedly, if you are are real Aussie bloke. :-)

If you can't get a "store-bought" beer cosy, although I don't know anyone who buys them because the beer companies around here give them away by the dozens, a wetted cloth works well. Of course, living in Canada, this is only a problem for half of the year... the other half of the year, we use dry cloths, to keep the cold out.

I found a cosy prototype in the back of my corner cupboard (the really deep one with stuff that hasn't seen light of day for years). It was designed by me for an unusually shaped tea pot my father owned. It had to be a sort of "breakaway" number, so that it could fit down over the protruding wooden handle on top and the velcro on the sides allowed it to be pulled to around the sides once it was in place.

As a peek-a-boo cosy it would provide skimpy protection for anyone wanting to wear it anywhere but on their head.

On his visit to my infant school I remember being very puzzled when asked to look-after the bishops's crook. As a regular Dixon of Dock Green watcher at the time - I was expecting to sit on a hand-cuffed jolly 'cockeney' type burgler with a striped shirt and a bag of swag.

I was quite relieved to find this heavy but rather swanky crystal glass affair - which I quite proudly held for the duration of the bishop's visit to our carol service.

Bishop drops in to school

From the Evening Advertiser, first published Thursday 23rd Nov 2000.


Pupils and staff at St Bartholomew's School in Wootton Bassett gave a warm welcome to the Bishop of Ramsbury, the Rt Rev Peter Hullah.

At their assembly, the children were fascinated to learn that the Bishop's crook, which is a mark of his office, was given to him by a real shepherd,and is made from hazel wood and ram's horn.

A Bishop is like a shepherd, in caring for the people in his area, he told the children.

Thanks for sending the material, Shambles! That's a nice slice of life there.

Shepherd's crooks are found everywhere--lamps, curtain rods, jewlery, ornaments of all sorts. A friend of mine completed a fundraiser this summer in Greenwich Village, New York, to put a Shepherd's Crook lamppost outside one of the oldest bars (also one of the oldest gay bars) in the area. They've been trying to get rid of those ugly modern "cobra head" lamps.

Here are what they look like.

Now how to direct this conversation back to tea cosys, eh?
