I'm going to give this blogging another go.....
as I feel a bit left out ...seeing lots of my friends doing it.
I'm not going to put loads of personal stuff in here, or try and add loads of photos, as I want my blog to be clutter free and my garden I want it to be easy to look after and not need much work done to it.....(a bit wild and overgrown then!)

I have been very busy making clay birdies for a craft fair I'm doing in August, and more to put in my Etsy shop and a few local shops here.
I'm making some butterflies, flowers and long fish shapes.
It's all very exciting....

I'm making around 100!!!
It's not mass production..honest!
They're all hand cut, stamped, smoothed and fired, then all individually painted....


  1. Hello there!
    I finally found you in blog land!

  2. Marvelous! I work in large batches as well - it's the only way to go!

    I don't understand those who feel presure to keep thier blog up daily. Better to blog when you have something nice to share. I'll add you to my list of inspirations. Aileen x

  4. Thanks for the gallery recommendations, I'll definitely get in touch with them, they look interesting. I'm moving up to Perthshire in a week and a half so when I'm settled in I'll be commencing my assault on the galleries of the north! Do you show much in Edinburgh? The Marchmont Gallery - sells a lot of jewellery and ceramics. If you send me your email address (link on my blog) I'll send you an invite to the PV of the Flaubert show if you like and some more Edinburgh gallery ideas. Keep up the good work! Claud x

I sometimes buy pre-made pizzas. I think they are pretty awful and have no taste, but if the family are hungry and I'm feeling lazy...t...
