Highlights from the weekend

Last weekend was a busy one. I was taking part in a show with Caversham Artists over the weekend so spent some time there with so much lovely art work. Here is a snippet of the weekend, you can see more here.

I'm second from the left, you should be able to tell from the vase I'm holding!

I also managed to make a few new moulds, this one should be dry this week so I can start casting from it. I've also take photos of it at various stages so I'll post them soon as people are always asking how the moulds are made. This is a textured beaker, vase and matching coasters to follow.

I was very chuffed as I sold the first large jelly mould dish last weekend too. I've got a few more to glaze so once they are finished they will be listed in my shops.

Work in progresss

I've been thinking about Christmas lately and have been making these baubles as well dishes that stack inside each other.

I've also finished some new coloured coasters too. It's so exciting trying out new colours and textures but frustrating having to wait for two days for my kiln to fire and cool down before i can open it. I'm always tempted to have a quick look before it's cooled down enough, I'm sure one day I'll singe my eye lashes opening it too soon.
