soper hall christmas fair

Soper Hall Christmas Fair

I’ll be at the Soper Hall Christmas Fair in Caterham on Saturday November 23rd. This is one of my favourite markets. It’s in a nice location and has a good feel. This is combined event with the open-air market in Caterham, but the Soper Hall Christmas Fair is indoors, protected from the elements. If you’re around that day, I’ll be very happy to have a chat with you. Soper Hall is on Harestone Valley Road in Caterham and the postcode is CR3 6HY and the £1 entry fee includes a tea or coffee.

Warlingham Craft Market

I’ll be at the Warlingham Craft Market this Saturday (Nov 3rd, 2018). It’s a lovely little market right on The Green in the centre of Warlingham, in the church hall. I’ll be displaying some of my latest ceramic pieces as well as my hand-painted Christmas baubles.

If you have time, do drop by for a chat, to see my work and that of the other talented people at the market.

All the best, Gloria.

glorious leaves

Glorious Leaves

My first ever house plant while at uni was a “Swiss-Cheese Plant” (Monstera Deliciosa) and I kept it alive for nearly 30 years!  No wonder then that I can’t resist making these leaf shaped platters. It’s a real passion.

I’ve been experimenting making various styles in our pottery studio, and they were a central feature in my exhibition at Standen House (National Trust site) in July. I love making them and they seem to be really popular.

Peter will be putting some of these glorious leaves in our online shop soon, but here’s a sneak preview.

foxcub pen pot

Foxcub Pen Pot

Made for a friend, this “Foxcub Pen Pot” design was inspired by the many foxy visitors to our garden.

Hand-made from white clay. Hand decorated and finished with a clear, glossy glaze. It’s basically a decorative pot that can be easily used or pens or paint brushes.

It was a lot of fun to make and the finish has come out quite well. It’s about 11 cm high at its highest point and about 10 cm in diameter (including the fox).
