Are you still alive?

There’s been so much happening here at Servant Ceramics… First up – we had a great time at out recent markets.

Andrew and I also had the pleasure of his parents…… Continue reading Are you still alive?

It is nice to have a man with strong arm muscles around the studio….

Here is Andrew helping the kiln cool down…. Sometimes kilns take far too long to cool down. Especially when you are nervy about the contents! Truth be told, yesterday’s firing didn’t go completely to plan, but then again, when does life go to plan?! To say I was nervous is a definite understatement.

The kiln…… Continue reading As any parent knows, when there is silence, something is happening…

Back into the squishy stuff | Shops are live again | Valentine’s Day special

It sure is amazing to be back in the studio! So yesterday afternoon, I was busy trimming those vessels that are photographed above (several custom mugs and a special wedding gift order) and I had one of those happy sigh moments and I literally said out loud, ‘I love this’. After a month away from the wheel, my…… Continue reading Back into the squishy stuff | Shops are live again | Valentine’s Day special
