Mad March Round-up

Two websites, a Facebook page, 
an Instagram account, an Etsy shop and a Blog
 ......  oh, and a pottery, I nearly forgot!

Have been mulling over how best to serve all these masters and, as far as this blog is concerned, I think I'm going to just do a monthly round-up of some of the ceramics I've been producing.  For anyone really interested in the day to day workings of the pottery, I post on IG daily, and on FB weekly.  

So March was a busy time.
Made a commissioned piece for a birthday. 
You've seen lots of these here before. 
Each one reflects the recipient's life - hobbies, interests, etc.

Had a mad psychedelic phase (well, I did grow up in the Sixties!).
This one's in my Etsy shop now. 

Made a few little wrap-around vases - 
this one sold within minutes, so there are more in the pipeline....

I varied it all as usual with some smaller bits and pieces.
Some sold, some still up on Etsy.

Had fun with a new, deeper bowl shape. 
Pleased with how it turned out.

And decided to make more tiny tiles, 
and put these into the Etsy shop, in packs of four.  

And I finally finished my own driftwood and ceramic sign
for my garden shed/summerhouse. 
Mulling over whether to paint it bright beach-hutty colours,
or leave it drab brown.
Looking at the above, what do you think I'll decide to do?!

Hope you all had a lovely Easter and are looking forward to some gorgeous Spring sunshine this weekend!

[  Apologies to those who've already seen some of this on other social media platforms - and a huge thanks to those stalwarts who follow my work in several different places!  I am no longer the billy-no-mates of Instagram!!  Phew! ;-)  ]


  1. Definitely bright beach hutty colours for your shed ... happy sign makes you want to go inside. I have been drooling over your pottery trying to decide what to get for my sister's birthday in June. She will really appreciate such loveliness. That little wrap around vase is really pretty. Might have to order a few of those for my summerhouse.

  2. That deep bowl shape is promising. Now to see whether I'm sufficiently au fait with IG to find you there...

  3. Beautiful work as always Cathy. Never a problem to see your pieces in more than one place! X

  4. I love the chickens! Now off to join you on fb...

  5. I love those little wrap round vases, I can see why they sold so quickly. Hope you're enjoying some spring weather.

  6. You have been busy! I love the psychedelic plates and those beads are gorgeous. I haven't ventured onto Instagram yet. When (or if) I do I'll see you there. x

  7. Love all those colours, and sympathise with you on the juggling posts issue, I'm rubbish with my own FB but have enough problems just juggling life and blogging, as can be seen by my very late catch up here! I will go find you on FB as well though now.
