Doctor Who thing of the day: Emma Bridgewater Daleks

You may be familiar with Emma Bridgewater pottery — it’s huge in the U.K. You may not be aware that you can design your own “Emma Bridgewater” stuff at the Emma Bridgewater factory. All sorts of ready-made designs are available for you to sponge onto your pots and plates and mugs to your heart’s content.

One of those ready-made sponges comes in the shape of a Dalek.
Yesterday I visited my friend, blogger Katyboo, and her kids Oscar and Tallulah were delighted to show me their Dalek-themed Emma Bridgewater items. Here’s Oscar’s:

I’m told Oscar, who is four, was in his “black” period when creating this one. This very much suits the Dalek personality of genocide and conquest.

Here’s Tallulah’s:

I like how the artist, age eight, has captured the desolation of Dalek civilization in deep space with her star motif. I believe that may be a red-dwarf sun at the very center of her composition, suggesting an unremitting coldness at the heart of a Dalek.

(If you stumble across a cool Doctor Who thing, feel free to email me with a link.)
