I had a fantastic time at New Designers, meeting new customers and getting to know the fabulous designers in the One Year On section. It is a great social experience for us makers after slaving away on our own in our studios. I was also delighted and a little overwhelmed to have been chosen for the New Designers One Year On award.
I am really excited to be exhibiting at New Designers again. I has been a long hard slog in the run up to the show not least because of recovering from appendicitis but also because I have come up against nearly every technical challenge ceramics can throw at you. Still with a ridiculous amount of stubbornness and a great deal of support from friends and family I am getting there. I may not be awake enough to speak to anybody next week but I think the work looks good. Phew.
