My First Wedding Fayre

It feels great to have dipped my toe into the wedding industry! Yesterday I was at Nettle Hill, a beautiful wedding venue in Ansty near Coventry, exhibiting at a wedding fayre by Old, Borrowed & Blue.

In the world of a ceramic artist

A few weeks ago, I decided to brighten up one of the walls in the studio by displaying some of my ceramic hanging decorations. It has turned out to be a good way of showcasing the work, and also for customers to gauge the size of pieces. It also gives me something pretty to look […]

Tips & Experiences from Ceramic Artists

Every ceramic artist has their own creative journey, different reasons for where their interest in ceramics came from, and how they have developed a hobby or career as a ceramicist.

New Year, New Inspiration

I have to admit that after I posted out my last order just before Christmas 2014, I breathed a huge sigh of relief and took a little longer of a break than originally intended. As you might have seen from my overview of 2014, I think the break was very well deserved! January was a […]

In The Studio . . .

I love this time of year in the studio… The halogen heater is on full whack, set to rotate mode to radiate the warmth around the room. It also helps with the drying process of the clay which is always a little slower than usual in autumn. I have the radio on, bopping away to […]
