Merry Christmas everyone!

New Designers 2011

A few weeks ago I took part in New Designers! The show was great fun to be part of and I managed sell some of my work to a shop in Winchmore Hill! 
Plus I also sold a doorknob mug to another lovely lady. I've had some more pieces come out of the kiln so I now have more mugs in black... photos will follow soon (ish).

Here are some photos of the set up and the work at New Designers..

On another note the Da3 shop was featured on the creative nottingham website, and i've got a mention as well as a few girls on my course;

Third year shop opening - 'Da3'

On the 5th of May me and fellow third year students at Nottingham trent, set up and opened a shop in central nottingham on the outside of the Victoria Centre. We are trading for four weeks and had a private opening evening which was a great success! Here are some images of the end result...

A few weeks ago I made a large mould which is abit awkward and heavy to cast from but I'm happy with it, its a big serving tray measuring about 40-50 cms long, so voila ...

above is new master which will end up being a sugar bowl, this photo is a mock up of how it may look with a the mini iron as a handle..

Porcelain accessories

For the past few weeks I have been making some porcelain jewellery consisting of necklaces, brooches and earrings, all in aid of raising some dollar. This weekend I am being a stallholder with a few friends at a vintage arts fair in my hometown of Sutton Coldfield. Here are a few of the end products which have been glazed and decorated with transfers..

Ceramic Art London 2011

I have arrived back from being a helper at ceramic art london which is held in the Royal College of Art. The exhibit was full of ceramicists from all over the world, so I went with a friend to help set up the show and speak to the makers themselves, and hopefully gather some inspiration and tips. Here are a select few photos of artists there..
