I love watching people make things by hand especially when you can fool yourself into thinking it looks easy enough for you to give it a try. Hmmm screen printing anyone?

Phil makes beautiful faceted vases by hand using a mould and resin.

You have to watch this video of Phil making the above vases using the set up below. Beautiful!

He also makes lampshades using the same technique.

Better late than never I say.

My mum wanted to keep the christmas table simple this year as she thinks no one really takes any notice of her fancy table settings. Not true but we usually knock something over and break it despite all being quite grown up now. Our clumsy gene seems to increase when we are all together. We all claim to have not broken a thing all year and then we get together and its almost like we are competing for the clumsy award.

So here it is – white and silver.

See the glass reindeers – I broke the antler off one of them last year but managed to super glue it back together before dinner.

Are you looking for some beautifully crafted ceramics for my going away present?

Oxford Ceramics has a stunning collection of contemporary ceramics available for purchase thru their online store.

Here are some of my favourites –
