About Salt o' the Earth

Salt o' the Earth

I create colourful cards and hand built ceramics.

My background is in advertising and graphic design and it was when my daughter was little that I started making all manner of things out of salt dough. From cats and pigs to bowls and mirrors. Selling at school fairs. I now concentrate on my collection of greetings cards and sell them through a few local galleries in Yorkshire as well as on my Folksy shop. I hand colour some of the dough but also paint with acrylics and use a traditional salt dough recipe. I use hand made papers for texture and copper wire, beads and ribbons as embellishments.
I work from home using the spare bedroom as my workroom/studio often joined by my tortoiseshell cat Millie.
I also make ceramics from my garage studio where I have a small kiln. I use earthenware clays. I am working on a collection of functional pieces. I have always been interested in making pots having had the opportunity to take pottery classes at school.
At the moment I have a collection of Christmas decorations available to buy.
