A few weeks ago two very large boxes
arrived at my studio door.
I’d be expecting them
but their contents
were even better
than I’d imagined.
A while earlier the talented
Sue Paraskeva agreed to
make a round of bowls for HG (!!)
and so both bubble-wrapped boxes
were filled with those.
Each bowl is perfectly askew
and the loveliest blue grey.
They’re made from a mixture of stoneware
and porcelain which makes for
a beautiful beige dappling
and a slight sandy undertone.
Available in both small and medium
each is one of kind.
we’ve been filling them
with an easy spring broth.
Fish or chicken stock,
and purple-shelled clams.
They’re perfect for that,
but I think
they’d be beautiful
with a couple scoops of
pastel-coloured summer ice cream as well.
Hope things are swell.
I’ll be back with those new pies soon.

Hello! Happy Holidays!
And well, Happy Birthday to Herriott Grace.
Back in November we turned FOUR!
Can you believe it?
Truth be told, it wasn’t long ago that HG
was a teeny little holiday shop
I worked on during my spare time in university.
And while we’re still pretty wee,
it means the world to us to be here.
So thank you.
Thank you for supporting what we do
and for making this whole thing
And in honour of our special day,
we’re giving a few things away.
The large (and beautiful) pedestal in this photo (!!)
