a two week blur

gosh, what happened to the last 2 weeks - it's all a blur! We have been so busy with shows and exhibitions and deliveries and making work .... and driving! We have been to Surrey, London, Bath, Warminster, Bovey Tracey, Bristol and everywhere inbetween it seems. This is the first chance we have had to sit down and post on the blog what we have been doing. Lots to catch up on and tell you about.

First things first - thanks to everyone that came to see us in Chiswick at British Contemporary Crafts. There were some amazing designer makers there and we met some really lovely people but were a little disappointed at the number of visitors (maybe the awful rain on Sunday put people off). Thankfully, during the quiet bits of the show, we had Sue, Michelle, Megan, Nic and Jackie, and Jessica to chat to.

we also managed to deliver a few pieces to customers, inbetween the London show and taking work to galleries for xmas exhibitions - we took one of our square reclaimed oak coffee tables to a customer in Surrey and delivered a beautiful full length reclaimed slate mirror commission we made for a customer near Bath. It's always nice to see where our pieces are going.

Had a flying stop in Bath mainly for food, to visit the Toast shop and also one of our favourite furniture shops (tell you about that another time). Then sped home via Bristol (where I snapped a few abstract shots of the Clifton suspension bridge which looks beautiful all lit up at night).


  1. Hi guys, I've just come across your beautiful work and was pleasantly surprised and very flattered to find my own work mentioned on your blog - thanks for that! Keep up the fantastic work.

  2. Glad to hear that you're so busy! I'm envious that you get to visit Toast. Wish we had them in the States, but I must content myself with their catalogs.

    Happy Holidays! xo Gigi

  3. teresa - thankyou, glad you like our work too. we think yours is beautiful.

    gigi - we've only been to the Bath Toast store so not sure what the others are like. The store is lovely and it's nice to actually see the range but we do think their catalogues are beautiful too.

    deborah - thankyou, lots to catch up on.
