Happy New Year

In the weeks leading up to Christmas it felt a lot like Santa’s workshop here at 2Spots! It’s been lovely to be a part of so many special presents and I’m sure there must have been lots of happy faces when the gifts were opened.

Hand and footprint baubles were very popular in 2016 as were various Christmas related designs created from hand, foot and finger prints. My personal favourite is still a robin made using a toddler’s thumbprint or a baby’s big toe print and with the mum or dad’s fingerprint as the red chest.

It’s also been great to make personalised pottery gifts – last year, among other things, I was asked to make some family wall hangings and some lace bunting which were a real pleasure to create. My adult pottery classes also made lots of fantastic Christmas decorations and gifts that I’m sure were well received.

Thank you to all my lovely 2Spots customers for your support in 2016 and I look forward to making some more creations with you in 2017.

I will leave you with a selection of photos of some recent creations.

New 2Spots Tableware Range

Over recent months I have been working hard to make some new glaze colours and combinations and some new jug shapes. It’s been a long journey with lots of delights and frustrations along the way. Anyway, I’m excited to say that I have created some tableware that I’m really pleased with and I do hope you like it too.

My children have had fun naming the colour schemes and think the whole range should be based on sweets (I wonder why?) so far we have “bubblegum”, “rhubarb & custard” and “sherbert lemon” and I think they have probably got it spot on!

Having my own business has been a massive learning curve and I joke to friends and family regularly about having to wear so many different hats! One hat that I have found particularly difficult to wear has been my photographer hat! I’m really lucky that my friend Jenny from Jenny Owens Photography has taken some wonderful photos for me for my website but I was very concious that I needed to be able to take my own photos too. Photographer and friend Dave Gibbons gave me a crash course on how to use my camera to take photos of my work which was incredibly useful and I have been trying very hard to get some good photos of my new product range. My dedication to the cause was so great that I took my new pots on holiday to Dorset to find a good setting and to get additional photography help from family members!!

Well enough of my rambling, here are some pictures of my new products and my attempt to improve my photos! Oh and, last but definitely not least please come and see my new pots in person at my Open House on Thursday 29th September 🙂 x
