sweet hearts

I made these dishes from clay slabs cut and shaped into little heart bowls. I could see them holding a fiew tasty bonbons, as soap dishes in the bathroom or to keep safe jewellery taken off at night ...

P.S. They were snapped up in no time. Will need to make some more.


Bug's Buddies

Together with Bug I fired these test birdies.  They are glazed on one side, will happily hang wherever they're wanted and shimmer when the sun strikes them.
I wonder what you make of them ???

I love 'before & after' shots. Here's a bug I made of paperclay and then painted using Botz glazes.

And this is the result ...


fired works

Have just been to the Fired Works Ceramics & Glass Show at Blackthorpe Barn near Bury St Edmunds (www.fireworksceramicsandglass.com).

There were about 70 artists showing some truly amazing stuff. They were all really friendly & happy to 'talk pots'. There was some yummy veggie food too & a microbrewer who'd brewed ales just for the occasion. Nice sitting down for the 'tasting' & chatting with lovely people. It was well worth the treck up from Canterbury. Will definitely go again next year!

Here are some potters whose work I particularly liked:

www.russellcoates.co.uk - Lovely painted scenes
www.interludeceramics.com - Beautifully spontaneous & uncomplicated forms
www.jenniegilbert.co.uk - Some amazing shapes with intricate detail
www.cathydarcy.com - Great contemporary use of colours
www.katefisher.co.uk - Lovely soft colours remind me of the coast
www.ikebanapots.co.uk - Very feng-shui. Tim's my Adult Ed tutor - I'm a lucky girl :)
www.carrieannefunnell.co.uk - I'm drawn to clay, but Carrie's glasswork is simply stunning

 Returned the proud owner of these little espresso cups & saucers from interlude ceramics.
