If you follow my blog regularly you may remember the work in progress stages of these coastal inspired ceramic wall panels that I posted a few weeks ago. It’s amazing seeing the difference of before and after, the glazes turn out completely different when fired, to when they are first applied. That’s why I get so excited opening the kiln, it’s never 100% how a piece will turn out. Sometimes it feels like opening the door to a colourful sweetie shop!
Sea Shell Tea Light Bowls – Continuing on the seaside theme, these small bowls have been impressed with real shells and are the perfect size for holding a tea light candle.
Dandelion Ceramic Wall Hanging – This piece was sent off to it’s new home last week, after being snapped up from my online shop.
New sets of ceramic coasters – A gorgeous new natural collection. Once my new studio is set up when I’ve moved house, I plan to begin making sets of handmade ceramic place mats too.
Organic Ceramic Plate – Featuring a beautiful organic design, glazed in pretty muted colours to match any decor.
Ceramic Butterfly Brooches – This ‘rabble’ of butterflies has flown into my shop with lots of different colours and textures available to pin onto your clothing, bag or accessory!
‘Moonlit Meadow’ Ceramic Wall Hanging – The name for this piece was chosen by one of my Facebook fans last week during a name suggestion contest. I asked my Facebook fans to come up with a new name for this hanging as I’d originally named it ‘Blue Moon’ but thought it needed jazzing up a bit.
My favourite name suggestion was chosen and the winner received a free card and brooch. Be sure to like my Facebook page so that you don’t miss out on these fun opportunities
Introducing a brand new product to my range for spring 2014…
Each curved panel stands as one piece and can be displayed at any angle. Beautifully decorated with different designs, textures and colours, ceramic curves would look stunning displayed in the home and would look great on a window sill.
I really enjoyed making these – it’s fun to work on something new.

Slowly but surely… I am getting there with my latest batch of work. I have really enjoyed creating some new style pieces and can’t wait to see the results from the glaze firing. The only thing is, I seem to have produced so much new work that I’m not sure everything will fit into the kiln – it’s going to be a tight squeeze!
When I first got my new kiln at the start of 2012, I thought it would be a challenge to fill it every time as I was previously only used to a very small chamber kiln. But now, my new kiln isn’t quite big enough!
What I love most about my glazing process is the fact that the colours always look so different when fired. It’s nice to see the contrasting comparison of before and after.
There has been a production line of clay houses in the workshop for quite some time now, so I am pleased to say that they are finally finished. It has been fun creating these quirky cottages full of character. I can’t wait to photograph them with tea light candles inside.
A few custom orders will be going in the kiln this week, including a couple of personalised heart plaques, a decorative plate, impressed baby hand and footprints, and even a plaque with some doggy paw prints impressed!
If you have been waiting for your custom order, thank you so much for your patience. Not much longer to wait now
It won’t be long now until I will be setting up my brand new studio in the garage when I move house. Although I love my shed in the garden, it will be so much nicer to be able to spread out more comfortably in a bigger space. Moving my kiln is going to be a mission, but I’m ready for it!
