As the Crow Flies had a bit of an outing with some very different winged beasts last week, occupying a stand at the Farnborough International Airshow in Surrey. Really excited to take along a new product made especially for the show – the Flight mug, featuring a plethora of birds, balloons and biplanes. Glad it went down well with the punters at Farnborough too!
It is, dare I say it, only about 6 weeks until Christmas…. An immensely busy time for makers all over, and it wouldn’t be worth it without getting out into the world to sell our products. Continue reading →
Wow, no sooner had I written up the post yesterday about my tea towel experiment being underway, than the very things arrived at my studio…. in an enormous box. Yikes – I did wonder if I might use them to manufacture endless bedlinen/construct a home/sail across the seven seas as there seemed to be so many of them. But I’m warming to them.
Enjoyed packaging the first few up for sale at The Little Shop in Bristol’s vibrant Stokes Croft arty quarter this morning… and, even better, getting one home to try out 🙂
Well, much as I am enamoured of the ceramics world… I’ve taken a step into the unknown and started a collection of illustrated tea towels, carrying my original designs, in time for the Christmas market season.
Very excited about this – my stock is due to arrive from Bryan Franks next week and then I will be getting busy packaging them in the pretty wrappers I’ve been designing ready for the first market of the winter – Stroud Farmers’ market on the 1st November. Going to have to find some suitably placed aga and do a photo shoot of my new products when they get in… hoping they live up to my expectations!
