Do you know someone who’s a member of a sports team or event organiser who is looking to get an award or commemorative item made for them? Over the last few years I’ve worked with a variety of people to produce custom bespoke awardsContinue reading →
I’ve been working on a lot of new light pull styles for the shop. They’re surprisingly good sellers, it seems a lot of you have trouble finding pulls you like! These small items really add character of their own to a room and come in all the colours from the glaze chart.Continue reading →
When you run an online business pricing is always a challenge. It’s a fine balance creating a pricing structure that’s realistic for the amount of work that goes into every piece.
It’s been a long time since I last put up prices and since then the costs of running the business have gone up. Everything from the cost of raw materials like clay and glazes to transaction fees on Etsy. After this busy Christmas period an increase in prices was kind of inevitable.
I’ve been neglecting the blog since October! Since then I’ve introduced new bird yarn bowls into my Etsy shop! These are intended to be a signature style because of course they look like little wrens with upright tails. They’re the smaller bowl shaped yarn bowl and can be ordered from any of the colours on the glaze chart.
Every one is made and decorated by hand so sometimes they have a slightly different personality! The pieces are hand thrown and then the tails and beaks attached once the pot is leather hard. They’re ideal for weights of yarn up to 50 grams of double knit weight. The curve for yarn on these runs the opposite way to the star bowls an if your working with a very fine yarn you could even run it through one of the eyes.
