Marvelous Marquee

Well, last Saturday was the first of THREE December I heart Markets and yes, it was held in a marquee tent to accommodate the expanding family of Marketeers. I think this was the biggest market yet! There was a wonderful festive vibe, despite the Durban heat. 

Here's some pics of the market on the 4th December and my neighbours :)

Saturday, 2 October, market-time

It's I Heart Market time again, yay. I always look forward to market days, particularly catching up with and being inspired by all the marketeers :) Don't miss it this Saturday at the DLI hall.

I've been glazing frantically for the last few days and have just packed my kiln so hopefully it's a successful firing. I've been super-busy with orders and coming up with some new designs, so come have a look.

A new design that I'm quite excited about, three hearts of different sizes strung together with plastic coated wire. The 'LOVE' print is a stamp I bought from Lisa & Jo, available at the I Heart Market. The hanging hearts 'mobile' are about 30cm long, hand-made from porcelain and hand glazed.
