The Hayrack Gallery – Shout out for new Designers
I paid a visit to one of my favourite stockists yesterday – The Hayrack Gallery in Upper Stowe, Northamptonshire at The Old Dairy Farm Craft Centre. It’s around about this time each year that I take some new stock and swap a few things around, although I haven’t been making any new stock for a while, its too cold out in the workshop! I’m determined to get back out there soon though. Either that or I’ll bring some clay into the house!
So I’ll be taking over lots of new stock to The Hayrack Gallery in a couple of months. My current stock that they have in the gallery is getting a bit low now. They sold a lot of items last year, and I found out another vase and a bowl were sold in January. I think the display will look much better once I make some new sets of coasters, plaques, clocks and maybe some letter racks to go with the current vases, sculptural vessels and bowls.
My favourite designer at the gallery is fused & slumped glass maker Carrie Anne Funnell. One of my main reasons for visiting the gallery is to see what new creations she has made. This photo was taken in the gallery last year, and not many of the glass pieces are left now. Carrie Anne Funnell has been travelling for 12 months and is just about to start on her new glass ideas, I can’t wait to see them. How amazing is the green and red glass lamp?!
