“Goods for the soul”
Hello All! Sorry I have been a little absent, 2018 is proving to be the year of change, bringing a few unplanned events, moving home and replacing my old banger for another old banger. Sometimes life throws us some unforeseen dodge balls, but change should always be welcomed.
I took a well overdue long weekend off this week to venture back to my home town in Bristol to stay with my folks. I always treat it as a mini retreat, an opportunity to slow down, walk the dog and relax. I have been dying to visit Sidonie Warren's beautiful new concept store - Two Palms, situated above Papersmiths in Bristol to peruse the lovely array of gems on offer and to see my ceramics in their new home. On Friday my mum and I ventured up to Clifton Village, the sun was beaming throughout the airy upstairs store, welcoming in the spring breeze, softly bellowing the incense of the newly lit Palo Santo wood, its fair to say we didn't want to leave. Kristin the shop assistant was so lovely and knowledgable and helped us find the perfect stones for mum's vertigo, a smooth piece of Jasper and a light bouncing Amethyst. It was such a pleasure to see my ceramics placed amongst such beautiful healing gems and stationary by People I've Loved which never fails to make me laugh and say an inner "Yes! That is so true!" Our homes are now calmed by the smell of our Palo Santo wood branches, each of our palms now have a little gem that we can call our own. If you haven't been yet make sure to take a visit. And yes I did pick up a pen or two in Papersmiths, it would have been rude not to! Haha xx
Frome Independent Market
It's hard to believe but it will soon be Birks (Birkenstocks) and Potting outside weather. Which means also Market Days!
These are the markets I've got lined up so far in sunny somerset! I am delighted to have a suitcase stall at the bustling Frome Independent Market. I'm very much looking forward to meeting some new faces and hanging out with the regular makers. Please come and say hi and share with me all your locally produced finds. I will be selling my new summer range of Home Thrown Ceramics, including lemon squeezers, sip cups and jugs.
