My name is Tim Worthington and I live in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada and have successfully run a pottery with my business partner Pam Birdsall since 1977. We are called Birdsall-Worthington Pottery Ltd. and use a local earthenware clay that comes from a brick factory here in the province. We decorate with coloured slips and coloured transparent glazes firing to cone 03. I love repeating patterns and patterns that are built up using a simple element that repeats to create something more complex. My favourite pots are 9th cen. Chinese funerary jars.

I also want to be a jazz guitarist when I grow up. I am in a jazz quartet and really enjoy playing music with other people. My wife is a flute player and I have finally gained enough facility to be able to play with her now, which is just such a gas. We have played out at local restuarants and clubs in our area and enjoy playing both celtic and jazz tunes.
