I posted about Sophie Conran's Pottery made by Portmeirion china factory which is based at Portemeirion, Gwynedd, North Wales. Portmeirion is an incredible village created by architect Clough (Cluff) Williams-Ellis. Williams-Ellis designed and constructed the village between 1925 and 1975. He incorporated fragments of demolished buildings, including works by a number of other architects; he wanted to pay tribute to the atmosphere of the Mediterranean.
Even though it rained the whole time I was there and crawling with people, it is a magical place and well worth a visit.
