On selected items from my Etsy shop.
I dedicate this sale to all the aunties in the world! Here is why:
My aunty Olenka (lady on the left) was a loving woman, did not have children but she did know how to talk to them and engage with them.
I spend wonderful weekends in my aunty's home watching them making dresses, embroidery and cooking. They inspired my creativity encouraging me to try again when I failed, loving me, feeding me and giving me freedom. A big hug to all the aunts in the world.
My embroidery platers are inspired by Olenka and Antonieta.
Ceramic watercolour dish
I love travelling, it makes me feel relaxed and grounded, in tune with my surroundings. I become appreciative and open and is on these conditions when the ideas flow.
This year I have designed a watercolour dish to share with you. My watercolour ceramic dish is small and resistant enough to travel with you on holiday. To keep it safe the dish comes with a wonderful quilted pouch out of warm and soothing Batik fabrics from our lovely Walthamstow High St. shops.
I was working on Black Ants over a red background from The Amazonia. It was the perfect opportunity to try the watercolour dish even with a wide flat brush and it works very well!
If you are an artist and appreciate well made beautiful and practical objects this will be something you will take for sure on your holidays.
Feature at The Craft Council Diversity Report!
The Craft Council had featured one of my masks to illustrate their Making Changes in Craft Report! Yes, I am proud that my work is used by an organization that supports Craft Makers in UK.
This report is an important study from Dr Karen Patel of Birmingham City University’s Craft Expertise project, in partnership with the Crafts Council, which aims to support greater diversity in craft. All images were sourced from the Crafts Council Directory.
We tried to source a range of makers and different disciplines to highlight the breadth of craft to accompany the report, and your work was one we found visually striking.
