Isn’t this amazing! I bought this a few weeks ago for my nieces birthday which is the end of September. The longer I have it the more I want to keep it. The quality, detail and finish are fantastic. Really I think my niece is too young at 2 years old to look after it […]

I tried some felt making at our venue at Bucks Open Studios last weekend, it was fab. This is my creation, a felt bowl. I loved making it and I am super pleased with the result. I’ve also been making some new coasters, buttons and brooches with a button pattern. They are quite cute, I […]
On Friday we went to the private view of venue 13 of the Henley Arts Trail. There was so much lovely handmade work there I had to treat myself to a few things. I’d seen this on Beady Pool’s facebook page a few weeks ago and rather liked it so I quickly snapped it up. […]
I’ve been elephant spotting today. Has anyone else seen the decorated elephants that aim to raise support for the Asian elephant, which is threatened with extinction? I only saw two and could only photograph one as there was a dude sitting on the other one which would have ruined the photo, I wish I had […]
There is nothing more exciting than opening the door to the kiln to see what treasures it holds. I hate having to wait for two days for it to cool down but it’s usually worth it. I’ve been trying out some new designs that will be for sale at the Oxford Literary Festival on 27 […]
New style cupcakes hot off the press, available in my folksy and etsy shops.

It is less than a week until the first Caversham Arts Trail starts and I’ve been busy cleaning my studio ready for visitors. I think I may have cleaned it too much so I’m going to have to make a few things this week or it will look like I don’t really use it. The […]
I’ve been testing out some group shots so that I’ve got one image that represents my work. What do you think? I’m not a trained photographer and sometime take hundreds of shots before getting the right one. I’ve tried out lots of different angles, as well as different items in the shot and finally think […]
