Last week we were on holiday. Only to Centre Parcs, nothing wildly exciting, but great when you have small children! The holiday did make me realise that although my work is all about the ocean, my natural habitat, where I am most woodland!

So more lichen....

And while I was away, this piece was published that I was interviewed for a while ago on the somethingwelike blog :)

I have been toying with the idea of creating sculls in porcelain - such a wonderful bone-like material. I am fascinated by the structure of sculls. It would definately be a challenge! The first scull is from a roe dear and the second from a squirrel. My apologies for the poor photos, they were under glass.

Some more woodland images...Mushroom Folk by Champignons I have one of these beautiful prints myself :)

Mossy green gold is one of my favourite colours and I love actual moss too. Another texture I've been meaning to replicate in ceramics. (I really do need an eight day week!)

This is a photo of my Parents-in-Law's garden path. They have a beautiful old house with old barns, outhouses and pig holes. Delia is a watercolour artist and is hoping to have a studio built in the grounds this year. Shame they live so far away!

I did a swap a couple of weeks ago with Liz of Made in Lowell. This wonderful needle felted brooch, not only has wonderful textures, but also mossy green and rich rust colours....what a fantastic combination!

Another great artist with mossy pieces....ottoman

ArtisanClay has this vivid green piece amongst many other glorious colours!

This week, my garden has been transformed. Once full of overgrown archetectural plants and cold grey there is a lawn and a vegetable patch! Yay!

Talking of Neice, Eden is one today...Happy Birthday Eden!

Last week I finished glazing quite a large kiln load. Quite a lot of white pieces, and beads too this time, so here's a little taster of the finished pieces. More photos on flickr

Ah...feeling happy in the sunshine! A robin was singing a lovely song as I hung the washing on the line.

I'm hoping to make some more beads tonight, then earthenware glazing tomorrow and get the kiln on (bisque and earthenware in the same kiln load). In the meantime, here are some links to some beautiful robins. Robin felt brooch by Lupin and "I" said the sparrow by nonsuch.
