Caravan Suitcase and Tin Lockets

Last night I managed to get a few images of the rest of my current project 
(Thank you Miss Penny for your fabulous modelling skills!) 

Here goes:

Screen printed case lined with vintage maps and vintage fabric.

Vintage tin locket embroidered and lined.

Vintage pick-up needle tin locket, embroidered and lined with vintage maps.

I also made a tin locket ring, but the pictures really don't want to upload and I'm tired (where did the day go?? Maybe it was the nap I took it threw my whole day out! Who knew a presentation and a stomach ache could suck so much energy out of you!?). I will try again tomorrow.

My stamp has arrived!

I got my stamp in the post today...

Is it sad that I am very excited about this?? I'll be stamping everything :)

Caravan and Map Plates

For our most recent project at uni I have been looking at travel and what better way to travel than an awesome retro caravan? After drawing, converting into a digital format, testing, testing, and more testing I finally got some final finished plates. As I got the last two out of the kiln this morning I thought I would share them with you...

I'm now bored of ceramic transfers and so I'm making a suitcase and some jewellery for my project too. Will add better photo's when I set up to be marked :)

Spirit of Christmas

Yesterday I spent the day helping Alice Mara at the Spirit of Christmas event at Olympia. It was really interesting to see how it all worked, will definitely help me when I start thinking about New Designers next year, and hopefully one day Origin. 
There were some really lovely stands, I especially loved some of the printed textiles, so much so I was forced to buy some!  
I got an apron and a tea towel from Pintuck

I really wanted to buy a cool-bag and blanket from Anorak, but it’s a bit out of my price range at the moment. One day!! So pretty!

As a thank you for helping her Alice gave me one of her bowls :) 

Alice’s bags are great too.
