These colourful cast porcelain pieces are inspired by some beautiful bottles I was given a few months back. Some have glaze around the rims, some are spotty but all are completely unique and made by my own fair hands.
Not only do they look lovely as a little collection with or without a cork, but they also provide the perfect display for garden flowers and make sweet little gifts.
I have absolutely loved making these bottles and hope you enjoy them as much as me....
On the 3rd and 4th December I will be at the Artists and Designers Fair at The Pavilion Gardens, Buxton. If you have some free time I am sure it will be worth the trip out to buy some lovely unique Christmas gifts or simply to treat yourself... http://www.paviliongardens.co.uk/fairsevents/artists.htm
I will have lots of new work on display and some special offers just for Christmas!

Sorry for the lack of posts recently - I have been extremely busy on a design work placement. However all will be back to normal as of September, when I will be setting up my own studio enabling me to continue making! I can't wait!
However for now I have one update -
My work is now available to purchase in the 'Opus Gallery' situated in the lovely market town of Ashbourne, Derbyshire. The 'Opus Gallery' are stocking my earrings, necklaces, cluster pieces with or without the walnut base and my tall individual pieces.
Please pop in and have a look if possible - If not my work is always available to buy directly from me. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send prices and images of work that may be of interest to you.
Just a quick update on what I'm getting up to over the next couple of weeks....
Tomorrow I am heading to Earth and Fire at Rufford Craft Centre - where Nottingham Trent has a stand. I will have a couple of pieces on display along with an abundance of seconds between £5-£15, necklaces, earrings and cards! It’s a really lovely event and I really do recommend a visit.
...it's all very exciting...and to top it off I now have a studio space which I don't plan to begin making in or have fully up and running until September...but I will keep you updated on its and my process and set up over the summer.
