Wedding Flower Preservation Ceramic Keepsakes

Following on from my last post, I wanted to share some more wedding flower pieces I have been working on recently. I think this large wall hanging ceramic tile below will always be one of my favourites. I really enjoyed making it and loved the mixture of flowers, delicate stems and foliage. It is difficult […]

Preserve your Wedding Flowers

Capturing the beauty of flowers in clay is my favourite thing to do! When I first thought about the idea of preserving wedding flowers into a ceramic piece, I wasn’t sure how well it would work or if it would take off. Much to my enjoyment, after advertising my flower preservation service a few years […]

30 Vases Commission to Celebrate 30th Birthday of Company

Back in August 2019 I was contacted by a lady who had purchased a bowl from me previously, for her Dad’s 60th birthday. She explained that her Dad loved the bowl so much, that they wanted to commission some work. Two sisters work with their Dad in their family business, and the business was celebrating […]

Handmade Ceramic Botanical Tiles

I’m so excited to finally be able to share my first set of botanical tiles that have been used for a kitchen splash-back. After much trial and error, I can’t explain good how it feels to see a beautifully presented installation of my work, actually in situ, in someones very own home. Just to be […]

The Artisan Baby Co. Fair

After a week of recovering from such a lovely day and catching up with orders from the Artisan Baby Co. Fair at Delapre Abbey in Northampton last weekend, I am pleased to announce that I will be back on 8th December at the next fair which will be even bigger and better! Firstly, a huge […]

The arrival of Emelia

On Valentine’s Day we spent the day a little differently this year… with the birth of our beautiful daughter Emelia. She was 3 days early so it was a nice surprise. In the first weeks, adjusting to being new parents was a bit different, certainly challenging, but things are definitely a lot easier now. I […]

Bespoke Ceramic Wall Tile using wedding flowers

I was thrilled to be asked to commission a ceramic wall tile using a wedding bouquet a couple of months ago. The bride had recently got married and was browsing online looking for inspiration for what to do with her stunning bouquet from Essentially Hops in Bekesbourne, Canterbury, when she came across my bespoke bouquet […]

Ceramic Red Berries house name & number plaques Commission

I first launched my Red Berries collection in spring, and it has been a huge success. I have made so many pieces featuring the Red Berries design this year, which are now all over the UK. People have asked for the design to feature on specific commissions, one of which being this handmade ceramic house […]

Celebrating Handmade

What is handmade? What does it mean? Something that is handmade, is an object that has been lovingly designed and created by hand, using huge amounts of patience, skill, experimentation, determination and thoughtfulness to get it just right. Handmade is trial and error, and takes time to perfect beautiful finished results. When buying handmade, you […]

Personalised Ceramic Wedding Favours in the Press

I love weddings at this time of year. I recently made a batch of 120 personalised ceramic stars for a bride & groom who are getting married in December. I’d never made an alternative shape to hearts before, so it was nice working with stars for a change. The couple wanted a lace design impressed […]
