Pottery giveaway contest winner

So last night I closed the pottery giveaway contest, I had 101 entries in total which was an overwhelming response so thank you! If you missed out this time I’m really sorry, I did close the contest slightly early to write this post.

Today is actually my birthday and I’ll be giving away a gift to one lucky winner.

The furthest away entry was from Indonesia and by far your favorite hobbies are within fiber arts with spinning, knitting and crochet being really popular. It was also great to read all your comments about how Little Wren Pottery can be improved, hopefully you’ll love the changes coming in the new range.

I can now reveal papillions was the winning entry. I’ll be getting in touch so keep an eye on your inbox!

If you didn’t win this time I’ll be hosting other giveaways soon so keep an eye on the site. Of course you can also still pick up a bargain in my shop sale too which is ongoing until the 24th of August.

Watch out for my next post which will undoubtedly feature a monster birthday cake! I’ll be making chocolate and vanilla marble cake.

The event was held at the lovely Preston Hall which I later found out was also a museum, it was in some lovely parkland that was great to explore on foot.

This time we were mostly based in the Helsinki area where we visited the excellent Design Museum which was having a retrospective of Oiva Toikka’s work. Oiva is most famous for creating glass birds and starting the company Iittala, ceramics and glass share design aspects even if the making process is radically different.
