Now that March is here the pressure is really on to get my new collections ready for the Britich Craft Trade Fair – just one month before the long drive up to Yorkshire! Actually, I don’t mind the drive there too much as I put on an audiobook and just enjoy it. I’m also stopping off halfway to visit one of my lovely galleries, Golden Hare in Ampthill. It’s always lovely to see Laura, and if I’m really lucky Puddle the dog will be keeping her company in the shop!
I’m really excited about the new designs I’m taking up to the show this year. I’ve been wanting to find a way of adding my own patterns and designs onto the silver, a way that I could do in the studio myself without being reliant in any way on commercially bought texturing tools, even hammers – and I’ve done it! The two new collections will be textured with designs that began as my sketches and so will be completely unique to me. The images above show a sneak peek – my new postcards and business cards and advert in Craft and Design magazine!
Right then, back to work!
