A handmade's tale - Spring 2019


Spring fever is here!

Here at Bower Bird Designs I have been busy learning a new skill which I am so excited to share with you. About 12 months ago I accompanied a friend to  ClayMake Studio – an open-access community-based ceramics studio in Bayswater.

ClayMake Studio is all about inspiring creativity and craftsmanship and its doors . are open to everyone with an interest in clay and ceramics - and as it turns out that’s me! From the moment I set my hands on clay I was hooked and have spent every spare moment experimenting and honing my skills. The techniques you will see on my website are a mix of hand building and slip casting which offers a blend of handmade with consistent shapes and sizes. I am decorating my pots with underglazes which provide a mat modern finish and using plant cell patterns to stencil striking designs. I am very excited to offer my new wares at the Spring Upmarket on Sunday 15 September 2019.
