Last week my kiln arrived from Germany and it has been working non-stop since then! Meanwhile, in my newly warm and cosy studio I am designing a range of geometric tiles for kitchens and bathrooms and developing some (hopefully) lovely colours with which to glaze them. Also, this week, my house number plaques are launched on housenumbers.co.uk. I created this design (above right) using geometric principles and, as ever with heart, head and hand in mind, I aimed to give a sense of the protective nest of our homes blended with the image of wings and all that they symbolise.
In the centre photo, this lovely apple blossom caught my eye and sent me scuttling off to find my copy of Keith Critchlow's brilliant book 'The Hidden Geometry of Flowers' for further inspiration.
