August was true summery weather
and much of it was spent outdoors,
rather than slaving over a hot kiln!
That said, the Summer Gift Fair went reasonably well,
considering that we had an outside pitch
and had to battle against torrential downpours
and a poor turnout of people!
Here are the action highlights from August ....
|star bowls, hexie bowls and nine-patch plates in the making...|
Some things are continually in demand
and I'm trying to never run out of stock for my Etsy shop.
|more hen ornaments, plus lots of tiny decorative tiles|
My new favourite thing
to make with left over scraps of clay
is tiny ceramic tiles.
|fired once and glazed - ready to be fired a second time|
Dreaming up the design
and how it's all going to fit together is quite satisfying.
|finished tiled pot-stands or trivets.|
Once completed, I fixed them to cork mats
and made some lovely pot-stands.
Some have sold, a few are still available
in my Etsy shop - link in side bar.
Some more star dishes came through,
in all sorts of colour combos.
Again, some have sold already,
but there are a few in the shop.
|lots of driftwood and ceramic signs for summer-living!|
|Really pleased with this one - now in my shop|
Oh, and a lovely commission to make
a wall-hanging starfish,
And now I'm off for another little holiday
while the summer lasts!
Have a happy September everyone!
