8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Rich Miller, potter
"As a young person growing up in West Sussex, I was made to feel very unwelcome. And so there was always this push and pull idea about what it was to be British. And my dad was fiercely proud of his Britishness. And I’ve constantly, through life, been trying to sort of rediscover and trying to learn what’s important and what makes us British. And the monarchy is something that’s unique to us and something we should all be proud of. And so it’s something that I use a lot because that idea of a monarchy and kind of the way they sort of exerted their rule across many nations, I find fascinating. So my dad was from British Guyana in South America, and he knew of the royal family and the crown long before he knew anything about the UK. And that formed all of his ideas about this country he was coming to. And I just find that fascinating."

"I went through the airport once and I had a horse in my bag. So I looked at the screen with the X-ray you can see a little horse. And he did stop me and he asked me and I showed him my Instagram and it showed that because I’m a professional, I do this and he let me go. But I am worried sometimes that they’re going to mistake them for ancient artefacts. But I think the glazing is so contemporary, the colours are so contemporary that I think of them I’m safe."

"So basically because these stones were inside the dead people’s body, so they are like parasites. So they will kind of mimic these aspects of parasites because they will king of like consume the body of the dead. So I think that’s why you’ve got this mouthy aspect."
