Fairs, New Products & Blog Mentions

I havent written a blog post for quite some time. I've been extremely busy making in preparation for my upcoming shows. I've also had quite a few gallery orders to send so have been preparing work for these too.

Yesterday I exhibited at The Little Northern Contemporary Craft Fair at Cheadle Hulme School. You may have noticed that I've been doing a few of these fairs recently. They have been set up by the organisers of the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair which takes place in Spinningfields, Manchester in October every year. These 'little' fairs allow a selection of the exhibitors from the larger event to showcase their work and sell directly to the public. They are fantastic events and of course the standard of work is always very high.

NEW: tiny sea salt bowls

I have recently been working on a new range, incorporating colour into my work. Its been a very exciting new step for me and I have been developing colours over the past few months. Combined with a white glaze I have created my new Sea Salt range of blues & greens. I have also been working on new shapes, including small bowls & vessels and my biggest pieces yet!

This range is set to be launched at New Designers at the end of June but I have taken a few smaller pieces along to the Little Northern fairs to gauge public reaction. They have been really popular and its been great to get feedback on them.

I'd also like to draw your attention to two lovely blog posts which I came across about my work at the fair yesterday.

 

Sian runs the interior design company 'Morgeous' who make homes more than gorgeous. She bought one of my tealight holders which has found a new home on the mantlepiece in her bedroom and shes also written a wonderful blog post about #LNCCF.

Kirsty is a self-taught sewer who inspires others through her helpful tutorials on her blog. Her posts are well worth a read, especially her one about the #LNCCF yesterday.

The full range of Sea Salt product including a range of bowls & small vessels will be launched at New Designers: One Year On Part One, 26th-29th June at the Business Design Centre, Islington. I hope to see you there! And for now, I'm back to the studio.
