Once in a blue moon

So I haven't blogged in a long while, and since it's a blue moon tonight I thought maybe this is the time to finally get round to it. Lol. It's been a very busy year, I've been developing some new products such as the ones you see below. The Token range has come a long way since 2008 at the very first I Heart Market.

Over the last year or so, I've introduced small little dishes - the heart-shaped, tulip-shaped, lace imprinted bowls and small pie-dishes. Each one is hand-made and hand-glazed by myself. Recently, I've sought to expand that range to include these two new designs.

These little dishes are slip-cast in white stoneware and impressed with stamp details, and some have been hand-drawn into the clay. So each piece is unique.

I'm totally loving the new colour glazes I've introduced: the rich coral, acid chartreuse, light turquoise, lemon yellow and a new denim blue.The flower stamped bowls have a lovely muted matte glaze on the outside which really contrasts wonderfully with vibrant  shine of the inside colours


Those of you that are regulars at my stall at the I Heart Market have probably noticed these little plates below. These are the perfect size to use as a soup dish, teabag holder, spoon rest or just for popping your jewellery into at bedtime. Each has a contrasting glaze on the back too.


Well, that's it from me, hopefully it won't be another blue moon until I update my blog.
Here's a quick snap I took of a orange blue moon over Durban tonight. See you at the market!
