Pot-Easel: Display Stand

I recently tried out a ‘Pot-Easel’ and must say I was quite impressed. It is a sturdy quality construction – simple to assemble – made from solid oak and very effective for displaying plates and chargers without damage. It would be equally useful for the private collector or for Gallery and Museum use.

  

I set out below the makers Press Release which covers a lot of background and detail:

Pot-Easel  is a unique display stand developed primarily for studio pottery and ceramics. Made from solid oak, the product was invented by Paul Sansom and Freda Wade, who obtained a design registration in 2010 prior to the launch at Earth and Fire in the same year.

This simple design took several months to perfect in terms of display, support, material choice and function. The traditional oak construction compliments the potters work and the unique sliding bridge gives a versatility to allow 3 size settings.  The central pole ensures a low centre of gravity and excellent support. Since the launch the product has received many good reviews from Potters and collectors alike encouraging the makers to add new lines to the range. Customers have also found many other uses for Pot Easel ranging from supporting menus and books to pictures and icons.

Further developments now include a small size for use on shelves and a large version that takes the wide circumference platters, bowls and heaviest chargers. Two colour variations are available- natural oak and black [burnt oak].

Pot Easel can be purchased at some of the ceramic shows in the UK, galleries or direct from the makers www.poteasel.co.uk .
