New yarn bowl styles – ‘little star’

If you’ve been following some of my postings over on Twitter and Facebook you might have noticed that over the last 3 months I’ve been working on some new styles of yarn bowls. This is the first of three new styles and it’s quite different from other yarn bowls currently in stock.

Process: Making handmade pottery plates

It’s been a while since I last talked shop with all these projects going on! Lately I’ve been making a lot of plates, products seem to go in cycles during the seasons and I think in spring people really start to think about their summer entertaining.

So far its been quite a mild winter but my thoughts already wander to the heady days of spring, when the mornings start to become lighter once again. I’m already working on some new glazes to come into the shop for the new season.

The Christmas rush

There’s been a lot going on in the studio the last week or two in the run up to Christmas. I’ve been working on custom orders, glazing and packing pieces up to send off to their new homes.

The end of the year always brings a time of reflection. A moment to pause and look back at the 12 months that have passed and where the next 12 will take you. For me it’s been a year of firsts, my first major show and I’ve seen things become increasingly busy.
