Christmas Fairs and Media attention!

The last few months have been quite manic! I started a new job at the beginning of October and have been settling well in there. We have finished painting and renovating the house and now I will be able to give all of my time to my ceramics work.

After setting up my pieces at the Cardiff Open 2013 in High Street Arcade, I was approached by the welsh language magazine Golwg who wanted to write an article about my ceramic process. This was a great opportunity to showcase my work, and S4C then recorded a small interview about the exhibition.

I collected the pieces as the exibition finished last week, and I've also collected work from an exhibition in The Pound Arts Centre in Corsham, Wiltshire just in time for Christmas Fairs I have coming up. 
I returned to my home town for a few days and also delivered work to the Aberystwyth Arts Centre Shop for the Winter Christmas Fair. 

I will be also taking part in two Christmas Craft Fairs with the Cardiff Arts Collective, one on the 30th of November 11am - 5pm in St John's Church, Canton and the other on the 15th of December 11am - 5pm in Paget Rooms, Victoria Road, Penarth. 

I've had a few developments with my ceramic work too. I have been looking into using terracotta slip for the pieces too as an interesting contrast. I have bought a gold lustre glaze too, in the hope that the success rate is greater because of it being a glaze. My next few weeks will be used up making porcelain christmas decorations for the Christmas Fairs and making new jewellery pieces. 

The last few months have been mad, which is great and I hope that the Christmas Fairs will be just as fun!
