mistletoe-2016

Mistletoe Bowl

November 22, 2016

Our final limited edition design of 2016, Mistletoe. A celebration of Christmas through this richly symbolic evergreen plant.

Stealing kisses beneath a bough is a relatively new tradition associated with Mistletoe. It’s folklore is, in some places dark, however, in Yorkshire it’s been a symbol of living in harmony since Mediaeval times and this element of it’s history seems worthy of note and more relevant than ever.

Available to order at the end of November. Please join our emailing list for the notification.

 

A Winter Story – Ryedale Folk Musuem – New Bowls

October 26, 2012

Made five bowls for the Christmas exhibition at the Ryedale Folk Museum, “Winter Story”.
It opens today and runs until the 9th Dec. There is some very good photography in the show and if you are passing Hutton Le Hole, be sure to call in for a monochrome feast for the eyes.
Planning on making bowls in these designs for our galleries for this Christmas.
