A Gift for a Friend

A Gift for a Friend

a personalised cup
My friend and neighbour Mr William Brown had a birthday recently and I customised this cup and vintage french plate for him by way of a present. As well as a gift it was also a good opportunity for me to experiment with firing transfers onto other ceramic surfaces.

Will, who is one half of Old Town clothing, is a keen railway enthusiast and so I have decorated his crocks with a personalised steam-train.

For now I have taken a stylised acorn with my initials within as a maker's mark.

I am very pleased with the results and intend to pursue this line further. Watch this space.
