This is it, my first blog post!
I've been thinking of starting a blog for aaages, and made it one of my resolutions for 2012 to make it happen. Blogging's not my only resolution for this year, I'll also be starting my own business and attempting to discover whether it's possible to supplement your income with clay!
I first started making things from clay around 8 years ago- mostly slip casting from commercially produced moulds and making a few handbuilt items, which I then sold at craft fairs. My hobby came to an end when we moved into a flat and I sold my enormous rusty old kiln and everything else with it. Fast forward to 2012 and I'm itching to get my hands dirty again!
I plan to develop and design my own range of ceramic items- I've got tons of ideas and can't wait to get started. This time round I'll be making my own molds and slip casting my own designs, which I plan to sell online, but there's so much to do before I even get to the selling stage. I'd love it if you'd follow my journey- I'll be posting here about the sucesses and failures along the way, interspersed with tales of my other interests- gardening, crafting, family and baking. Wish me luck!
