Now if there’s one thing close to a potters heart other than pots, it’s food. I’ve just popped into the over two chocolate cakes:

Recipe:  Super Easy (very delicious) Chocolate Cake

1 cup organic s/r flour

1 cup organic raw sugar

1/3 cup cocoa

1/3 cup organic butter (softened)

1/2 cup organic full cream milk

2 organic eggs

Directions:  sift dry ingredients into bowl of mix master, then add wet ingredients. Mix on med/high for 4 minutes until light and fluffy.  Bake in a square or round lined cake tin for 35-40 minutes on a 160 oven.

Ice with your favourite icing or for simplicity dust with some pure icing sugar.

Serve with a cuppa coffee, tea or hot chocolate…..enjoy.

Bottle tags return….

These little gems were very popular when I first started my online store with Bluecaravan in 2010. They went very well at the night markets in the city and sold out at the Finders Keepers market in Brisbane.   

I’ve decided to reinvent them and release a new collection just in time for Mother’s Day 2014. The style has changed slightly, and the colours are new, but the handmade quality and durability remain the constant. Handmade from Australian Southern Ice Porcelain and twice fired, with the second firing to 1300 degrees, there strong, dishwasher safe (please remove the ribbon) and sure to be well used and loved.

I’ve just finished colouring a first run and am excitied to see what they look like once fired. They’ve just been loaded into a bisque firing. This won’t be able to be emptied till late Thursday, early Friday morning. Then they will be glazed and ready for their final firing.

DEBUTING AT THE BrisStyle Indie Market – inside City Hall Saturday 10 May, 9am till 3pm.

If you would like to pre-order some for collection at the market, please just send me and email. Further images will be available next week.

Your last opportunity to visit the markets named best handmade in Australia.

Here’s the site map……I’m located at stall 23 in Santa’s Corner (which I keep calling Santa’s Grotto – which conjures up the thought of snow and cooler temperatures, or is that just wishful thinking!

Snata's Grotto the 2nd

I hope to see you Friday night and wishing you a Merry handmade Christmas.

Finder Keepers…..

Firstly I would like to thank all the lovely visitors to the Finders Keepers Market on the weekend. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and feedback from our market visitors.

I must say that after months of hard work making and preparing in the studio, I was delighted by all the beautiful comments and smiles on everyone’s faces.

It’s such a reward to see faces light up when look around at your work. I’ve decided to store these warm friendly words in my heart for when I’m working alone in the studio.

Below is the a shot of the stain glass windows across from my stall, they were gorgeous…
