This week marks my first anniversary in the studio. To mark the occasion I am having a little giveaway (inspired by The Hopeful Potter).
One whole year of my new life making pots has whizzed by so fast I can hardly believe it – and yet my previous existence seems way back in the dim and distant past. So much has happened as I have practised and practised and seen little peaks of improvement (as well as the less exciting plateaus), I’ve started doing the market stall and got a permanent pitch, met some lovely people, collected a surprising number of contacts through blog readers, facebook likers, twitter followers and mailing list recipients, been accepted for a serious craft show, got a big restaurant commission and the promise of an up-coming mention in a great magazine. Far more success than I ever imagined. This blog was the starting point, and connecting with other blogging potters was my initiation into the ceramics world. Thank you all!
To take part please write a comment below, saying something about what you value about having/using hand-crafted items in your home.
Next Monday eve, after 7pm I will put all the names in a hat and pick one out. That person will receive a free mug – as shown above.
I look forward to seeing your thoughts!
Ps, for Facebook and Twitter people, please leave your comments on the blog page.
