However, I rarely suffer severe bouts these days and can usually post within one or two days. If your purchase is urgent, e.g. for a birthday, feel free to message me to check when it can be posted.

About Cloth and Clay

Cloth and Clay

Handmade products that make you smile

I'm primarily an artist working in different materials. Having been a potter making domestic ware for more than 30 years I stopped working with ceramic clay and started making jewellery from silver clay. I have also been making decorative textiles for about 40 years. Additionally, I work with Friendly Plastic, photography and other materials. Increasingly, I am broadening the scope of my work and try to always make things I like that bring a smile to other people's faces.

I'm inspired by many things, but primarily by nature and colour. Increasingly I find ways to use colour in my silver jewellery as well as the colourful plastic earrings and colour is the starting point for all my textiles work. The natural world is also a huge source of inspiration, from animals to landscapes, gardens to insects, I'm drawn to natural forms whether realistic or abstract.

If you don't see what you'd like to buy in my shop please do message me. I may have stock at home which can be made available on Folksy or if not I may be able to work to commission.
