Holmfirth Art Market

This time last weekend we were in the middle of the buzzy Holmfirth Art Market, enjoying the one sunny day in a month surrounded by wonderfully original contemporary art and craft.  It certainly brought out the punters, and the atmosphere was really upbeat.

So here it is...

We were really chuffed with the look of our stand and new work, not to mention the fabulous display of flowers picked from our garden that very morning.

New look stand...

Anemone design pots with astrantia....

and turquoise lamp post design vases with aquilegia.

We were surrounded by lots of makers and designers who we hadn't met before, displaying a diverse range of truly inspirational work.
Here's a sample of their talent......

Ann Davies makes whimsical figures and exquisite collages.

Lucy Gell is an illustrator and printmaker with an amazing display of humorous prints.

Tamsin Fazan creates stunning colourful lighting

and Oonagh Corr makes curious birds and angels from wire and paper.

Also our good ceramic chum Michelle Freemantle of Creatively Occupied was there, and she won the award for the best presented stand - well done girl!

For those of you who missed the market last weekend there is another Holmfirth Art Market on Sunday 24th June with 50 more talented makers displaying and selling their original handmade art and craft..

Meanwhile we will be at Rufford Park next weekend from Friday 22nd - Sunday 24th June exhibiting at the big international ceramic fair called Earth and Fire.  This is an outside event, so keep everything crossed for good weather.  May see you there!
