Sorry about the shaky camera work!
We had a great time at the 100% Design show in Olympia, London.
Looking forward to some interesting commissions.
WE are slowly getting back to normal after a great time at Handmade at Kew, held in Kew Gardens in London. Lots of sales and plenty of interest, so we are hoping to get some Chinoiserie commissions from it. Our dearest wish is to be able to tile a whole room one day! The next show we are doing is Made By Hand in Cardiff City Hall 2 – 4th November 2018.
This is a set of tiles sent to Australia for a kitchen refurb.
The range was developed years ago for Waitrose supermarkets for their cafés. We took the range off the website a couple of years ago, but now I am revamping it, and it will go back up soon.
Some star tiles for behind the sink:
A customer kindly sent some photographs of her lovely new bathroom – we painted the Diatom tiles for her at the beginning of the year.
We have three new ranges for 2018: Galleons, Wildflowers and Delft Birds & Bees.
We also have two completely revamped ranges: Delft Animals and Diatoms.
It feels good to see new and improved ranges going on the website – I feel we are still getting better after 30 years in business (this March!)
I had a wonderful time at Made By Hand in Cardiff over the weekend. Plenty of sales and a marvellous array of beautiful crafts on display.
Here are a few pictures of our stand.
Carlo’s tiles and ceramics are currently being exhibited in the Victoria Fearn Gallery in Rhiwbina, Cardiff until the end of June, alongside Ed’s plein air Welsh landscape paintings.
Carlo is exhibiting at Picton Castle in Pembrokeshire for the month of May, in conjunction with Landsker Quilters.
I had a thoroughly good time in Cardiff last weekend, and was very happy with our sales.
Here are a few of the things we took:
I am exhibiting at the Geffrye Museum in Shoreditch, London this week – opening evening Thursday 22nd September 6 – 8.30pm (opening evening), then Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th September 10am – 5pm.
It is free entry – an exhibition of 55 potters in a lovely museum.
Here are a few things I will be taking
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.
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.
