New Kiln Day!

Thursday was a great day as it was happy new kiln day! The fab guys from Northern Kilns built and delivered me a brand new kiln and it is brill! It was pretty much made to measure squeezing through the door and many thanks to Pete who did a great job in delivering it, installing it and showing me the ropes. Thank you to all at Northern Kilns, great service (as always.) I am delighted with it and looking forward to firing it up.

Pictures from finish to start.

Potfest 2018

Potfest is now over for another year and it was great to be back again this year. Thank you to everyone that visited!

Potfest usually falls on my birthday and it was lovely to have this waiting for me when I arrived on Saturday from a friend, fellow maker and exhibitor Catriona Archibald x 

The Competition for this year was titled 'Strange Fruit/Fruit Bowl' so my idea was 'Deep Sea Sediments' which are Marine life that collect and bury in the sea bed. 'Fruits de mer.'

On the Sunday I had a lovely visit from these two gorgeous girls, my little cousins Freya and Esme with their fab tea lights they made at the event. Little potters in the making!

London 2018

I have recently got back from a trip to London. It is an annual holiday for me and have been going every Summer since I exhibited at New Designers in 2009. I was excited to go to the V&A to see the Frida Kahlo, Making Herself Up Exhibition which I really enjoyed. It was very personal with her beautiful dresses, items and paintings. We had a lovely day at my favourite places, Columbia Road and Spitalfields Market where there was an artists selling their works and prints. Other places we visited include Westminster Abbey, the Natural History Museum, Covent Garden, Liberty, Borough Market, Somerset House and we also went to see the King and I at the London Palladium and a day watching Harry Potter and the cursed child!
