About Me

My photo
I live in a small market town in the South West, with my husband and our cocker spanial called Lacey.We have one son.I have a small Ceramic studio and also am a U.K Lampworker. I have a studio which I produce handmade ceramics and lampwork glass jewellery, along with silver work. I attend craft fairs and sell in local galleries.I do one to one sessions on Ceramics, Basic silver smithing and Beginners Lampwork. My lampwork can be seen on my website or Flicker page under Avalon Designs.

Summer is really here......

What super weather we are having, hope you are all keeping nice and cool.
The studio is now finished and I have designated areas, for my silver work, Ceramics and glass.
It was hard work but with my husbands help, it is so worth it. This is how it looks now.

I can seat seven people now . I have kept my large kiln and will still be doing ceramics, but on a smaller scale.
I intend to offer 1:1 sessions in Tube lined Ceramics
Basic Lampwork for beginners
Basic silver work for beginners.

I did treat myself to a day out yesterday, improving my piercing skills. Had a super day with Jes Holt who produces some incrediable silver jewellery and is a great insperation. This is what I am making, even though it still has a way to go.
Dragonfly Brooch.
Although I really want to go on and finish my brooch, I must get down to doing some ceramics. It is Taunton Flower show the first Friday and Saturday in August, so I must keep focused.
This is some of the items ready for finishing.
Will pop back next month and let you know how I have got on.
