You shall have a Fishy, on a little Dishy,
You shall have a Fishy, when the boat comes in.
Maggie's latest fish designs have just come out of the kiln.

Tracy Makes Tuppence
6 September 2013 Tracy takes a break from making birds, as she has been commissioned to make this adorable little dog. The body of has been coiled and has hardened slightly, so it will be ideal for carving at the Lincoln Artists Market in the Castle Square tomorrow.
9 September 2013 It's A Dogs Life!
The little dog “Tuppy” is now finished and can sit in the window to dry out. Reminds you of that song, “How much is that doggy in the window? The one with the waggley tail.”
Three Little Owls
5 August 2013
Rise up this mornin'
Smiled with the risin' sun
Three little owls
Sit on my pottery wheel
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin', This is my message to you-ou-ou"
Lyrics by Bob Marley

Have You Ever Had A Square Peg Round Hole Moment?
24 July 2013Maggie has been busy creating more blocks for her Daisy Arch Towers. These large square pieces will probably all need to be glaze fired separately, as our glaze kilns are small and round. Hopefully they will shrink a little bit in the bisque firing, enough to fit a least two together. Have you ever had a size dilemma?
Two Penguins Add Three Penguins Equals…?
21 July 2013 Tracy has been cooking the books all week…literally. It has been so hot the accounts nearly ignited, but now they are all done and dusted for another year and all the penguins are present and correct. It will be nice to put down the pen and pick up some clay and make even more penguins.
