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.

Clay Club

The children at my Clay Club have created some wonderful work over the Summer Term. Their ages range from Year 2 to Year 6 and they have been a great group that have worked well together and supported each other. I ran two five week projects: one with the theme of “Tiles & Wall-Hangings” and they chose their second topic to be “Creatures & Characters”.

With both topics the work the children produced was really imaginative but there was significantly more challenging work in the “Creatues and Charaters” topic where thier chosen pieces ranged from the BFG to the Statue of Liberty! However they all rose to the challenge and I am so impressed with what they managed to achieve.


My new website & my first blog post on it!

Welcome to the 2Spots Ceramics Blog where I will be keeping you updated on what I have been up to and letting you know of my forthcoming events.

Getting my website up together and trying to get up to (some kind of) speed with social media was number 1 on my jobs to do for 2016, so it’s a great feeling to think that I will have achieved at least one goal this year 🙂

2Spots can now be found on Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook and I will be doing my best to keep these up to date and interesting!!

Thank you to Fiona at Skinny Panda Design for my new 2Spots Logo and website and to Jenny at Jenny Owens Photography for the lovely photos she has taken for me.

Over the next few days/weeks/months (!?) I will be adding to my gallery pages on my website. So far, you can find a selection of my baby hand and footprint work and also a gallery of the fantastic things that the children from my school Clay Club have been making. I have also just started some evening pottery classes for adults so I will be able to add some pictures of their fantastic plaques, tiles and wall hangings soon.
