What an exciting spell of blustery stormy weather just passed – all calm now! New in the gallery are our Scented Sachets with fragrances based around walks and special places in West Penwith. Take the scent of the sea or coast path home with you to remember this lovely coast. We are also adding to our range of St Just Artisan Soap by introducing Conditioning Bars for your hair to go with our best selling Shampoo Bars – coming soon and all Plastic Free!
I am working on a range of porcelain cats – tiny and colourful – a real departure from my normal way of working and ideal for my new smaller pottery set up.
A new shop category had been added – TABLEWARE – which will feature our range of hand painted and linocut earthen ware ceramics including plates, tealight holders, vases, bowls and baguette trays in a choice of Daub or Splatter designs. All are food and dishwasher safe and can be ordered individually or as sets. The range will be on sale locally here in the gallery in St Just and in Market Place Gallery St Ives.
We have been collaborating with local fine artist Justus Hattam whose beautiful pen and ink drawings of Cape Cornwall are available on mugs, trays and cushions and greetings cards – all selling very well indeed we are pleased to say.
Our Cornish Choughs textile range has sold so fast over the summer so we have decided to continue making printed teacosies, purses, lampshades, teatowels, lavender bags, draught excluders, bunting and cushions using those designs. There is a now new shop category for these – have a look at Textiles and Lampshades. New products are being added all the time – and we can now offer a bespoke service for cushions and lampshades. Please look at all the available designs and sizes on the various pages (most of the designs on the Greetings Card page are available for lampshades and cushions too) and choose your size of cushion or lampshade. We need two weeks minimum to turn your order around please.
I have added lots of new items to the Online shop recently so keep an eye on the What’s New Section. I’ve also added a lot of new designs to the GREETINGS CARDS category too. Please allow 7 – 10 days for delivery since we may need to reprint.
My work now has a permanent showcase in St Ives in Kara’s gallery – Market Place Gallery St Ives – at 11 Market Place in the town (TR26 1RZ). I am really proud of her achievements and the space is looking fabulous.
We are supporting Plastic Free Penzance and currently re-use discarded plastic from our local DIY shop as packaging for your parcels and ask you all to reuse your bubble wrap if possible too. Shortly we will be starting to use green bio-degradeable bubble wrap and already have recycled paper carriers for your purchases having ditched the plastic ones last year.
