Wow has it been a year already since the last Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair , I don’t know where the time goes, but I do know where the beautiful designers hang out… read on to discover for yourselves : )

As usual I try to cover the new designers I come across with work that catches my eye for one reason or another.  One such person was ceramist Jasmine Simpson with a new range of lions, dogs and birds.

I loved her curled up watercoloured fox (below) and her anxious lions and slightly starey looking dogs, best of all.

Melissa Montague had an interesting range of metallic objects, some functional, some decorative.

I watched Rhian Malin patiently draw out the design in pencil onto her pot, before creating these intricate designs with blue glaze, all with such a steady hand. Simplistic, stylish and sophisticated. The stand looked great.
