A range of brooches - 'All washed up!'
"Unique brooches made from broken pottery washed up on the shores of Beaumaris, Anglesey Wales"
These were inspired by a visit with my friend Cait to her grandmother's in Anglesey. We were on the beach and we kept finding pieces of broken pottery - good stuff as well. Some even had 'Wedgewood' written on the back - well 'Wedg' anyway! The pieces of pottery had obviously been dumped in the sea and some point (possibly at Liverpool?) and made its way down to the shore of Wales. Each one is totally unique!
I suppose you could call them a 'diffusion range' as they still tell as story and hold a memory and that's whats important to me!
The mug was a christmas present I made for my Dad based on the chewing gum floors larger vessels.
I'm also in talks with an internet based vintage clothing store - Vincent West Vintage to produce some merchandise and marketing for them.
