Autumn Feeling

Wondrous colours, smells and skies at this time of year - Autumn's blustery blaze.  I'm certainly aware of the frosty nights and mornings, it is bitter cold first thing in the workshop and difficult to get going.   Luckily the sun soon thaws things through and I've made a huge pan of warming soup for lunch.

It is a great soup season, with butternut squash, swedes, pumpkins and root vegetables - couldn't resist these gourds too - though I have kept them (sculpturally inspiring) to look at rather than eat.

Launching tomorrow is a wonderful new website, which I'm excited to be part of - Made by Hands of Britain.  The site has been cleverly created by Gillian Montegrande who says -
'There's something wonderful about a beautifully crafted, quality handmade product. So wonderful in fact, that this website is dedicated to the heritage and traditions of British craftsmanship. Made by Hands of Britain will create a unique community, one that champions producers and provides a marketplace for those wanting to browse, buy and enjoy the very best in handmade. We're putting the finishing touches to our website right now.'

Just as a special treat, here is a tiny preview of my part of the site

I have really enjoyed making my mini-site within Made by Hands of Britain, and the layout is so clean and stylish that it makes me look very smart.

Please do visit once it is up and running, (and see me in a new light), and all the other wonderful makers too. 

Do let me know what you think.
