The plate shown is made from a wine bottle. I thought this could be an interesting idea for recycling wine bottles, especially if one wanted to keep a couple of bottles as a memento of a special occasion! The energy used is minimal as my kiln is lined with a space-age fibre and fires in about 40 minutes.
For spring 2010 I have been inspired by purple. So as well as some completely new designs, I have the old favourites in new colourways. So far this year I have done two fairs - both outdoors, both freezing cold - so hopefully spring is just around the corner and by the time of my next outing on Saturday, 6 March in Broseley, the weather will have taken a turn for the better.
