Cambridge open studios!

It’s finally here! Cambridge Open Studios has started, my studio will be open to the public 11-6 9/10th July, 16/17th and 23/24th so please come along and say hello if you are in the area! Free parking for visitors outside the studio at the weekends, refreshments available. I’ve been saving my sale stock up specially and I’ve been busy making new things to show you!

I’m also taking bookings for summer and autumn courses, and as always if you want a special something made, I’m happy to discuss commissions.

I won’t be out and about at shows as much this autumn as I’m working hard to keep up with orders and develop a lovely new range of work, keep up to date via my blogs or join the newsletter to be the first to hear!

Also a big hello to a lovely new stockist in the UK, championing great design- Raw Dice<

Open Houses, Open Studios

What a busy start to the the year! With Maison et Objet and the Country Living Spring fair behind me now I’ve been busy building up stock for a summer of open studios and exhibitions. I’m delighted to be stocking several new shops and galleries this year.
During May I will be showing at the House of Newts, 26 South Avenue Brighton as part of Open Houses, every weekend in May 12-6 Saturday and Sunday. Looking further ahead you can find me at Worthing Open Houses at the end of June, and then I will be participating in Cambridge Open Studios at my gorgeous workshop in Cambridge during July.

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2011, and thankyou for all your support last year. This year I have a host of lovely new stockists and lots of new work in development, more info to come. I will also be moving my online shop to the beautiful new site Made by Hand Onlinewww.madebyhandonline.com

I will also be opening an online shop with Notonthehighstreet.com, links to follow as soon as my pictures are approved!

This season’s collection is all about the kitchen, with large vases and utensil holders, and small useful items like graters, egg separators and butter dishes. I can’t wait to be picking flowers from my garden again! I’m just product testing a new oven to tableware collection and having some material printed, everything should be ready for the Country Living Spring fair in March! For my trade customers, there will be new products on display at Maison et Objet this month in Paris, hall 8 with the BEDG stand I1-J2.
