Fun with fruit!

Now that the festive season is looming ahead, I wanted to prepare some natural decorations for my stall at my Christmas craft fairs coming up. I dried out these oranges and limes yesterday, the smell was delicious! I think they will look great with a few displayed in bowls here and there. I’ll also be […]

My Magnets in new Sample Box

I’ve been busy preparing these sets of magnets to go into a new sample box concept, run by Belinda of Shop Handmade UK. Each pack comes with 3 different magnets, wrapped up in cellophane with my card and sealed with my stickers. This should be a great promotional concept and will hopefully get my products […]

Recent work and Sale

It’s so exciting opening the kiln to see bursts of colour and shiny glazes! I’m really pleased with my new range of bowls. A lot of them have coloured glass melted in the bottom which makes them look quite eye catching. I decided to photograph these bowls all together like this, to save uploading individual […]

Work in progress

I’ve been getting ready for a craft fair this weekend, at Castle Ashby. I took a few photos of work in progress, although they look completely different when fired. I don’t usually like people to see my work in the making stages, as I’m worried it might put them off, because it can look a […]
