I exhibited at the Islington Contemporary Art & Design fair over the weekend!

Luckily, I was next to my good friend and fellow Central Saint Martins ceramic graduate Ruth Babajide (trading as MERBI - check out her work HERE - its amazing!), so it wasn't so terrible or as lonely as I thought it might be!

This was my first 'proper' trade show, so it was really scary - and an eye opener actually, of how much work and preparation actually goes into these things - you cant just bowl up and expect people to buy your work - (which is slightly annoying! hehe).

It made me realise I need a smaller 'diffusion range' so to speak... so watch out for mugs, jewellery, tiles etc... as people who walk in off of the street want to come away with things..

studio stuff and first glazed pieces...

So, ive finally started producing stuff in my studio!!

Its been a massive long slog of trial and error, with lots of spillages, noise and tears!!! But im finally egtting somewhere - slowly but surely. (i just have to keep the noise down!!!)

The first glazed pieces DIDNT EXPLODE - Hurrah!

Although the 'Rusted Decadence' glaze isnt coming out the way it did at uni, which is a shame. I'll have to look into the firing ramps. see whats going on!

Just a quick snap of the studio as is now:
