Dinner plates with a wedding styling

Recently an interesting email dropped into my inbox – I’m not always able to fulfill requests I get. This time I was able to! I was asked to provide a set of dinner plates and tea plates for a photo shoot. I usually style all the photos I take myself so it’s really an opportunity to see what other people do with my work.

Homegrown food festival 2018

Homegrown Food Festival Northallerton

It’s very nearly time for the Homegrown Food Festival 2018! I’m deep into the mid year stock take too, usually I always try to fit in a stock take prior to doing events so I know what I’ve got.

Open Studio for Tour de Yorkshire

Tour de Yorkshire

This is pretty last minute but this Saturday we’ll be having an open studio day for Tour de Yorkshire. If you’ve ever wanted to see what goes on inside a working pottery studio now is your chance! It’ll be open from 11am until 3pm to cover the time when the bikes and riders come along South Parade. You can find out a bit more and register your interested in dropping by over on Facebook.

If your not in the area on Saturday because this is really last moment notice I’ll be selling my work at the Homegrown Food Festival at the end of June. It’s a great family day out held on the Applegarth behind Northallerton High Street.

Just a couple of chances to come drop by and see my work in person especially if your interested in the process of making pots!

Kittec Glaze Spray Booth

Kittec Spray Booth

One of the most popular posts on this website is actually about my Kittec Kiln. I’m often pretty surprised about this! Lately I bought a new piece of Kittec equipment for the studio, a spray booth. I’ve never actually owned a spray booth before and this is quite a serious investment for the studio even though from the photos it doesn’t look like much.
