In 2018 I made some stuff. Turns out I quite like doing this. Lesson learned; things that made you happy during your childhood (in this case making loads of random sculptures / animals for no reason) are likely to still make you happy as an “adult”.
I realised today that I haven’t updated this blog for just under two years. Woops!
As of March this year I’ve taken a break from trading. I’ll still experiment with stuff, so you might find some of my work for sale in the future, but I’ve no idea what form that’s going to take at the moment! Currently I feel privileged to have a stable income allowing me the freedom to think about making work that I enjoy making, rather than what I think will sell.

Hopefully more updates soon.
It’s always nice to see something you’ve designed in print!
Last year I designed a logo for Leeds Permaculture Network, and recently they’ve used it to create some really nice bookmarks:
I created the logo by scanning in a sketch and using OpenSource graphics software Gimp and InkScape to create a vector image.
I also did a little logo design recently for Lauren’s knitting pattern and button etsy shop, so that she could transfer it into a rubber stamp:
It’s made me want to design my own rubber stamp, but I think I need a bit of a re-brand first!
My latest sausage dog, made from vintage tweed fabric! I think this is my favourite of the dogs I’ve made so far . I haven’t used thick tweed before and it’s lovely to work with, so I’m going to keep my eye out for some more.
At the moment I’m working on a new set of fish brooches made of old ties and scraps of shiny fabric, with buttons for eyes.
I also have little sale on at the moment – check it out here.
