It’s so exciting opening the kiln to see bursts of colour and shiny glazes! I’m really pleased with my new range of bowls. A lot of them have coloured glass melted in the bottom which makes them look quite eye catching. I decided to photograph these bowls all together like this, to save uploading individual photos which was rather lazy of me! I do have some much better images of each individual bowl on my Facebook Group - feel free to have a look, and you can also join my group if you like
Also quite new to my range, I have been working on these ceramic wall plaques with funny phrases engraved into the surface. These are popular at craft fairs and people always stop, read and laugh! Just a few examples are: “A lovely lady and a grumpy old man live here”, “Wine improves with age, the older I get the more I like it”, “Welcome to chaos”, “Grandma’s are antique little girls”, “I’m usually thin and gorgeous, but today is my day off!”.
I also do some homely ones such as Welcome signs, “Enter with a happy heart”, and “Live, Laugh, Love”.
After spending some time photographing my new batch of work I decided to update my Folksy shop with a bit of colour as it was full of earthy browns and natural colours, and it is now summer after all! I was so chuffed to find out I had sold a new bowl later that evening, with it only being listed for sale a few hours. It was one of my faves, as I said goodbye to it I took this photo!
