A leafy yarn bowl

The curl for the yarn is the same as the little star yarn bowls but instead here with the leaf it looks more like the arc of a branch. You can also really see the difference between the natural clay colour and the vanilla glaze that's been used over the top.

Custom yarn bowls

I add names to the outside of the bowls by hand, each one is lettered with a paintbrush. I always try to get a calligraphic look to the lettering which is easiest to do with a flat edged brush.

coloured slipware

Due to their simplicity they're usually more predictable in the firing process and more stable than glazes which you need a recipe to concoct. To seal a pot with coloured slip on it all you need is a transparent glaze which is a basic glaze with no colouring in it to reveal the slip underneath.

home made bird feeders

I always make fat balls for the birds during the colder months. To make them you'll need some bird seed, and some sort of dense fat - I usually use Trex, a vegetable fat but any sort of lard will also work well.

Lamp working glass

Lamp worked beads are thought to originate form the 14th century and became a popular technique throughout Europe. Modern lamp workers use gas torches which have air blown through them as an oxidiser in the process. The burning flame used to heat the glass to a molten state is so bright it's difficult to look at!

A potters tools

For centuries potters have used tools to shape the earth itself; from the wheel to sponges and ribs there’s something deeply intimate about our relationship with pottery tools. Their curving shapes assist the daily commune between potter and clay.

Rowan's Dalesman

I don't have those opinions about charted patterns these days. I often find that charts contain complex patterns which have intricate and beautiful designs unsuitable for line by line instructions. However I've been disappointed in the chart for Moorhouse, I've actually knit the first inch of pattern three times and in the end decided to modify it.

A studio break

So unfortunately if your order isn't in now I won't be able to get it to you before the end of the month. This will also affect orders during the first two weeks of September, but I will be creating additional stock before the break period. I'd advise that custom item orders won't start shipping again until the week commencing the 24th of September at the earliest.

Celebrate Dad

I made a set of four of these by soaking off the original labels and printing my own set on to an A4 sheet of sticker paper. The hardest part is smoothing them on straight and without bubbles of air underneath.

Bye bye red!

Unfortunately Ruby Red has been discontinued from the range of glazes, this is mainly due to its firing temperature. Its firing temperature is much higher than the others in my range to achieve a nice glossy finish. With that in mind I'll be switching to a slightly lower temperature red in the next month or two.
