Celebrating Art in the Garden

I have been working hard creating new sculptures for this fantastic garden exhibition. There is a stellar line up of artists and it is amazing how finding yourself amongst such a group of sculptors makes you seriously up your game!

Here are a few of the pieces I have been working on and a few smaller pieces I have been using to test glazes for the large scale work.

Very much work in progress!

Meet Phil

Say hi to Phil from Mitchell’s Timbercraft the very talented craftsman who makes my gift boxes.

As a bit of a perfectionist myself I was finding it difficult to source the type of packaging I wanted for my new product range. For me its all about quality, creating something special, in the end only handmade would do. Plus I get to support another local maker. Phil was a perfect choice as his attention to detail far surpasses mine, to be honest when I am looking for someone to work with if they are a little OCD you know they are going to do a great job.

Don’t they look lovely. A perfect gift for Christmas and available here

Now Phil also makes lots of other gorgeous things here are a few examples.

Check out more of his work on his Facebook page here pop on over and give him a like. Most importantly don’t forget to buy local and handmade this Christmas 🙂
