Multi-buying offers

Multiple purchasing offers have been available in the shop for a while now and while the corona virus lockdown continues here in the UK it’s an offer that I think I’ll stick to for a while yet. Multi buying discount only applies to orders being dispatched within the UK as airmail even to the EU can get quite complicated.

Mini chord pulls

You may know that I make light pulls in different styles and can be glazed to order.

I know saying I don’t like it is potentially quite controversial but there is something I prefer instead and that’s business to business sales.

Testing glazes

Surprisingly I’ve actually started thinking lately about new work for 2020 in the studio lately. I’ll be working on creating a new range of items soon, this will mostly be lead by a few new yarn bowl designs. I try to change the styles more regularly now than I used to. New designs are often directly inspired by customer requests I’ve had over the previous year. If I’m being asked for a certain style regularly it makes sense to incorporate it into the shop.
