I think I can hear sleigh bells...Charity Fundraiser and November Update Preview!
Hello folks, its been a while! its been tricky trying to plan when to do this update with the firing in rainy weather, postal strikes, and managing my energy. In the end I decided - the sooner the better!
Firstly id like to mention little Milo, the tiny hedgehog vase fundraiser for Myaware! Myaware is the only UK charity solely dedicated to supporting those living with Myasthenia, their families and carers.
If you'd like to be in with a chance of taking him home, have a look at the just giving page where you can find all the details!
I would be really grateful if you could spare even just a pound, you would be supporting a great cause!
I focussed on getting the mugs and ornaments finished to guarantee they would be ready and arrive in time for Christmas. This isn't everything that I have been working on- Cups, a few more mugs, luminaries and tiny animal vases will come at a later date, likely early December. I have been a little less able to throw pots and make larger items, so I spent a lot of time underglaze painting little mushrooms on Christmas ornaments. Each one took a few hours and multiple layers of underglaze to create these tiny pieces of art. I can't wait to see them hanging on Christmas trees! There is also one 'Under the Willow' mug going into this update. I carefully imprinted leaves from our lovely willow tree into just a few mugs, one of which will be going into this update, and possibly two more in the next. The glaze almost lookalike a loose watercolour of a willow in heavy rain- I love them! I really hope this mug finds a special home.
Anyway, have a snoop at the preview below!
The update will be Sunday 20th November, 7pm (UK time)
Sending love as always! <3
