Going.. Going.. Almost gone!

If you’ve been thinking about a special gift for your child’s teacher, grandparent, special friend or something for your own tree, then you better get moving! It won’t be long until I won’t be taking more orders for personalised decorations. One of these special decorations goes through lots of processes before it’s ready to ship to you. First it’s rolled, cut and dried for several days, then sanded and refined. Next is to fire in the kiln for 15 hours, with another 8 hours for the kiln to cool. Then it’s 2 coats of glaze before being fired again. Finally, I add your special wording then it’s back into the kiln for a 3rd firing before being wrapped, boxed and posted. Phew, that’s a lot of work!

There are lots of personalised options this year with lots of choices to make. From glaze colour to ribbon colour, decoration shape to bead finish. You can customise your decoration to get just the result you are after. Here are a few of the options:

If you are after a ready to go gift, I’ve got you covered for that too. From ring dishes to fridge magnets, decorations to bowls. Any ready to ship item will be posted the next business day.

Wedding ring dishes – my current obsession


Those of you who follow my blog will know that I can’t seem to work too long on a design before my brain insists I try out other new ideas. My last batch of little ring dishes and bowls were a real hit, and I then started thinking more about ring dishes and more specifically wedding ring dishes. My latest creations are focused on modern and fun ring and jewellery dishes with a touch of classic lace. A perfect alternative to the traditional wedding ring pillow.

First up I made a few heart shaped dishes with an amazing new turquoise glaze that I love!

Then I thought how cute a flower dish would be and I love how these came out

This is a larger scalloped edge bowl that can hold your watch, rings and necklace or maybe put it by the door for your keys. I love it as a candle holder

And then quite by accident I came up with this little frilly/rippled edge bowl

And of course, I had to try something totally new too! I’m getting organised early for Christmas this year with these decorations. Looking forward to playing with lots of new designs and colours for these.
