Please come and join us for a glass of wine and nibbles from 5pm - 8pm. If you can't make it we will be open from 10am - 5pm Fri 4th, Sat 5th and Sunday 6th, and if that isn't enough there will be a second show from 10th - 13th December so we expect to see you there!
There will be a selection of ceramics, jewellery, glass, photography and more. See the Reveal website for details of who is taking part and a sneak preview of the lovely handmade goodies that will be for sale.
I've been planning this show since March this year so I'm really looking forward to seeing it all come together. All the work will be handmade by local makers and is guaranteed to be high quality craft.

This time of year i often find i'm having one mad rush after another. Usually after nearly selling out of xmas decorations at every show i spend every night of the next week making more, this year i'm trying to prepare for the Christmas rush. This is this years design, more contemporary than last years trees.
Here is a quick preview of what is in my NOTHS shop. It's a great site with loads of products to choose from, just remember they're not all handmade so look carefully if you want something that is.

I stayed with a friend a few weekends ago and we visited some venues as part of London Open House. There were so many to choose from and after seeing a mile queue outside the Bank of England we chose to seek out venues less unknown that didn't have huge queues.

The vase above came out of the mould below that I made about a year ago and hadn't had much success with getting a whole piece out of it. By the laws of mould making it shouldn't really work as the clay shrinks around the centre of the mould and sticks to it often resulting in cracking. When I've tried it before it's always broken, i think it was because i was too hasty trying to get it out, this time i left it to dry for 3 days and it worked. Hope i can get a few more out over the next week and fire and glaze them to add to my shops.

I first saw The Cotton Potter on notmassproduced.com earlier this week so it was a nice surprise to see the same lovely items on folksy.
These jar/tin wraps are made from unbleached calico and cotton fastened with a removable hat pin. They look so delicate, almost like they are slip cast, i guess that's why i love the look of them.
This Silver wedding bouquet from jamball is so detailed, it's amazing. It incorporates buttons, felt, silver leaves and sequins, such a lovely idea and can be kept forever.

There are 10 lovely handmade from around the world in this sampler box, I'm very tempted to get one myself. Each sampler is approx £10 including postage to the UK .
If you buy one let me know if you get one of my items in it!
