Snail Mail!

Apologies to anybody who picked up a business card over the last few weeks and tried to view my website.
It's top of the list of things to do, and I plan to have it up and running over the next week or so!

In the mean time, if there's anything you'd like to know, don't hesitate to email me at www.charlotteelizabethceramics@hotmail.co.uk

Busy Little Bee!

It's been far too long since I posted on here, but i'm back!!

After my first busy few weeks, i'm trying my best to put my multi-tasking skills into action!

November started off my fortnight of fun at Chelsea Old Town Hall for 'Handmade in Britain'. It was a great experience to exhibit in such a prestigious building, and there were lots of lovely talented designer makers on hand with their friendly advice to get us through the week!


Check out what else was on show through the link below..

Next stop was Worksop for Harley Gallery Christmas Market, where I was selected to exhibit as a Rising Star. (We even got a big red shiny balloon to prove it)
The atmosphere was wonderful and really put me in the christmassy spirit.
Once again, I was surrounded by some lovely people, which made it a lovely experience.

 

For more info on what went on, click the link below..

Keep dropping in to see where I'll be exhibiting next.. The busier, the better!!!

Trick Of The Eye..

I was pleased to see peoples reaction to my paper vessels at the recent New Designers exhibition.
The words 'is that paper' were overheard several times, and people just had to pick them up to check.
Exactly the response I wanted, so 'Thank You' to everybody that left such lovely feedback on my work... It really makes me want to persevere to keep making!

Here's some more images, as promised.



A huge 'Thank You' to my big brother for helping me with the editing of my piccies... I need a little more practice, I think!

New Designer!

New Designers is over, and I'm so so jealous of week 2 being there right now!
It was a brilliant week, speaking to some really exciting people and hearing lots of lovely comments.
The lovely Dec Art girls made it a lovely few days..
Just trying to catch up on a little bit of admin work now, e-mailing some great galleries, so fingers crossed!!!

3 Is A Magic Number!

Graduating with a 2:1, New Designers in a week, and the exciting possibility of stocking this wonderful website http://www.designedinengland.co.uk/... 3 is a magic number!!!

I'm back in the studio, beavering away until I get chucked out... and then it's time to venture out into the big, bad world!

Vintage Is IN!

I seem to have formed a bit of an obsession with vintage tins...
They're so beautiful compared to some of the horrible packaging we have nowadays!

This is just absolutely BEAUTIFUL... I want it!

I Love Colour

I just can't help but love the clean crispness of White... It's my favourite!
But a little colour goes a long, long way.. So let the colour work commence...
You have to 'Love Colour', it makes everything beautiful (in small doses)!!

Room With A View..

The project's changing, as always, so i've done a full circle, right back to the beginning of the year, looking at postcards again...
Our little uni studio (with no windows) has now become my 'room with a view'... Even Mr. Sunshine payed a little visit today... Perfect!

So, here's a few new drawings..

Ready, Set, Business Plan!

As of yesterday, I've traded in my hands on creative side for a business minded planner!
After just two days, I'm already missing the studio, all of the girly chit chat, and most of all, my clay!
