I haven't blogged in a while so I thought it was about time I shared my news and what I have been up to! Time is flying and I am busily preparing for the Contemporary craft festival next week 6-8th June 2014 Mill Marsh Park, Bovey Tracey, Devon www.craftsatboveytracey.co.uk. I'm on Stand C14 if you are popping along to the show. It's a really lovely show with a mix of makers and a great atmosphere with demos and workshops outside to take part in. I will take some pictures and blog the highlights on my return.
I will also be exhibiting my 'St.Ives seaside inspired pieces again this summer in the ‘Summer show’ group exhibition of ceramics and paintings at the Porthminster gallery, St. Ives Cornwall 5th July-23rd August 2014 www.porthminstergallery.co.uk
I have also been a busy bee on the commission side from christening pieces to wedding anniversary plates. These are my favourite ones which I designed with personalised photos and text. I always really enjoy making these special pieces...
I have some exciting workshops lined up with more dates to be added so watch this space!
