I've been super busy these last few weeks preparing for the busy Christmas period. So much to do!

But I have had some time to do a bit of research for new products and have 2 new designers/artists work going online this week.

Firstly I had the great pleasure of visiting Kathy Dalwood, an artist based in Queens Park and her lovely house, you can view it on her website and explored her studio where she creates her concrete Figurines.

A bit of background:
'The collection has used as its source mass-produced plaster and ceramic figurines – mostly from the post-war period. Sometimes they are ‘narrative’ figures, interpretations of historical or literary characters, or they may be cheap 1950s re-interpretations of 18th century “haute porcelaine”. Some originals were beautifully sculpted, while others were crudely moulded. But each is very specifically chosen for its particular character and design.'

Next artist is Primrose Hill based Fliff. Fliff creates ceramics using white earthenware imprinted with lace doilies and her range includes beautiful cake stands plates, tea cup and saucers, and jugs.

So watch this space, both artists should be up this week....
