Handmade at Kew

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.

Chinoiserie tiles

We just had some photos back from a kind customer – some Chinoiserie tiles in a shower.
We are thinking of re-doing our own shower after seeing these!

New and updated ranges for 2018

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!)

Black and white tiles for above a cooker

This is a commission we have just finished and installed locally, near Cardigan.
All black and white handmade 5″ tiles, depicting a variety of local places of interst along with over 30 local wild flowers.

I have decided to make the wild flowers a new range and will try some out in full colour.
I have always had a thing about wild flowers!

 

Made By Hand, Cardiff

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.

Featured in The Sunday Times paper

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!
