Fresh From the Kiln – Summer Goodies

I love it when that happens… Everything turned out perfectly in the kiln last week. These roses are coming with me to the Stratford Home & Garden Show in a couple of weeks. Which is your favourite? I’m in love with the blue ceramic rose. I love this little family of different sized pots. They […]

New Wheels & Homemade Churros

Last weekend was amazing! After recently upgrading my car to a 4×4 to enable me to tow, and since getting our trailer, we are able to get Dizzy out and about to events and other fun things. On Sunday we traveled to a local show and entered a ridden coloured horse class where Dizzy came […]

Recent Commissions

I love making bespoke custom orders, especially when there is a story behind them. I often get asked to make a piece for a loved one, for certain special occasions or memories. These ceramic poppy vases were originally made as a custom request for a lady who wanted them to be displayed on her husbands […]

Out and About

I went for a beautiful stroll in the woods at the weekend… The perfect way to clear your head and take in the views. The sea of bluebells looked incredible. I love this time of year. The weather has been beautiful too, so me and Dizzy have been making the most of getting some cross […]

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 […]

Using Light

Our conservatory is turning into a photography studio lately! I’ve been using the gorgeous green painted wall in our conservatory as a backdrop which seems to compliment my work really well. It’s a great place for using the light in here… even on a rainy or dull cloudy day, it’s great to have so much […]

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. I thought it would be interesting to put together a selection of some of ceramicists whose work I love, and delve deeper into finding out […]
