We have just had a great time at The Contemporary Craft Festival, Bovey Tracey, Devon.
Mixed weather, but a good turn out, and we met lots of lovely people.
I have been painting a lot of fishy tiles and dishes for galleries – most of these are for the brand new Glass By Design in Penarth near Cardiff.
The last picture is of lots of fish tiles destined for Custom House in Cardigan.

Lots of photos taken by Kathryn Campbell of our house and studio.
Some bird tiles destined for Greece – it was fun painting the Hoopoe, Bee-Eaters and Golden Oriole, so I have added them to the range.
I love sewing in my free time, and always have. But recently I have got into quilting. Here is my first quilt just finished – it will be on display at Picton Castle, Pembrokeshire, 19th March – 30th April in a mixed exhibition “Skilfully Handmade Creations”.

A patchwork of tiles being sent out to a customer next week. They are 10 cm tile all from our stock of tiles – we are selling our stock 10 cm & 15 cm tiles at nearly half price – £7 for 10 cm and £8 for 15 cm. Just email or ring to see if we have something you would like. We also have a lot of 6″ tiles.
We have got a picture in The Sunday Times news paper for the third time this year.
This is a 2 week feature on contemporary potter to run in conjunction with the Great Pottery Show Down on television.
The tiles sizes and prices are slightly wrong – they are usually on handmade 5″ (127 mm) tiles, and are £16 each. Other sizes are available!
