Made in Leicestershire Directory

This is my second publication of the year; I have made it into the Made in Leicestershire printed directory for 2010 that was published this week. The directory showcases fifty original artists and crafters from around Leicestershire and Rutland, and I am very excited to be featured in it. I spent a long time preparing my artist statement for it and selecting an appropriate photograph that it is fantastic now seeing it all in print!

I feel really honoured to be amongst some extremely talented artists and crafters in this directory. If I was to pick any (which is extremely difficult because they are all very talented), the ones that caught my eye were:

Quirky stoneware figures (mostly animals) by Oddbods Ceramics...just look at their facial expressions!

Beautiful, sculpted and tactile handknitted and felted bags by Created and Felted...don't you just want to give them a squeeze!

Ceramic figurines by Create to Destroy...just look at the texture of movement captured in these figurines.

And of course my Handmade Custom Jewellery by Shpangle!
