Homegrown food festival 2018

Homegrown Food Festival Northallerton

It’s very nearly time for the Homegrown Food Festival 2018! I’m deep into the mid year stock take too, usually I always try to fit in a stock take prior to doing events so I know what I’ve got.

Commemorative pieces on the are one off items where the function of it is actually secondary.

Sun and Moon yarn bowls

Moon yarn bowls have had a temporary rest from being in the shop. I wanted to alter the design on these pieces slightly for the Moon side. Each one of these yarn bowls is thrown by hand and then the sun and moon are cast from a plaster sprig mold. Basically it means that these medallions are modeled by hand once and can be reproduced multiple times.
