Tivoli red now in stock!

If you’ve been keeping an eye on my shop you might have noticed a new glaze in the collection. Its something you guys asked for in my customer survey and I wanted to formally introduce it to you now that I’ve had some time to play with it.

Tivoli red is a beautiful ruby red glaze. It creates real statement pieces just because its so deeply red! I’m in love with this glaze since its so nice to work with.

Gaea beads

I don’t often win contests but it would seem that August was a great month for it! I was fortunate enough to win these beautiful beads.

Gaea beads is based in sunny California creating porcelain beads that are unique and one of a kind. As well as beads you can also find pendants, earrings, rings and other gifts.

As you’d expect much of the inspiration for the pieces comes from the natural world, but there’s also magic and mystery to be found in Gaea’s shop. Each bead set has its own theme such as the pretty blues and greens of the mermaid bracelet.

UK Handmade debut

A few months ago you might remember that I posted about my entry to the UK Handmade competition. Well I was joint winner in the competition and I’ve since gone on to become a more regular writer for UK Handmade.

If you want to read my article about Sunderland Pottery you can check it out in the Autumn edition on UK Handmade.

My next article for the magazine will be a recipe for Stollen in the Winter issue. I started eating Stollen since I don’t actually like Fruit Cake, I’m one of those difficult people when it comes to Christmas food.

Since I have to submit the article early it will mean having to make a Stollen in September. I’m also one of those people who moans about the seasonality of food so I’m not sure how I’ll feel about making it!

If you’ve never heard of UK Handmade its an online magazine dedicated to showcasing crafters, artists and designers specifically in the UK. Along with business articles you can often find lifestyle pieces on everything from growing vegetables to making home decorations.

Theres often quite a few opportunities available to UK makers on the forums or in regular newsletters so if your an artisan its well worth the time to sign up too.
