Long tailed tits

I caught a glimpse of a couple of long tailed tits near one of the feeders in the garden on Sunday. It had feathers in it’s beak, maybe it will build one of its architecturally wonderful spherical nests nearby?  I’ll keep you updated…………

Fishy fish

Here are some of the swimming fish groups that I am trying out. I took the first sample one to an event in February and as I took it out of the box the lovely lady on the stand behind me bought it!. Makes are fab people! Here are some minnow-esque chaps.

Two cat portraits

Kitty cat pals immortalised. Here are two of very many pusscat and dog portraits that I have undertaken. It’s a lovely thing to do to be able to capture a little bit of animal magic so owners have a pottery ornament as a reminder of their fave pet. This owner is coming to one of…

Little pinch bowls

A few weeks back I threw lots of little pinch bowls, now I’m working on designs that allow me to paint a successful design on such a little curved surface. So far Bees, Cats, Flowers, Chicks, Bunnies and this Star. Self isolation, inspiration.

There have been so many wonderful people through the pottery this year, I have absolutely loved seeing new potters have a whale of a time and some smitten by the clay.  The day sessions are best of all when there is enough warmth in the air to get the thrown pots drying that day, so…

Wonderful review

Thank you top Sarah, who came new to a pottery day with me last month and left me a really wonderful review. It was such a pleasure to show her how to throw on the wheel. Here is what she wrote; Fab day with Louise and her Mum Sheila, Tracey and Joyce, making and throwing…

Kettering church projects fundraiser

I have been busily making little clay replicas of two lovely and rather iconic buildings in my area. One housed the church community I belong to St Michael’s, a beautiful ‘tin tabernacle’ church hidden in the back streets of Kettering, and the other, the ‘big’ parish church with its magnificent and iconic medieval spire, that…
