DAY 9 TOKEN GIVEAWAY 12.12


I have huge crafter's envy of artists who work with clay, it is one of the skills I would love to master. CARLA DA CRUZ is on my green eyed monster list of high admiration, a true craftsperson creating objects of quiet beauty. Her brooches have been a staple of my present sourcing forever and are loved by lovelies of all ages. For 12 Days Carla is giving away one of her deliciously bright bowls of polygonal musings. I love the use of masking tape to create the negative and positive patterns between the glaze. Skip quick sticks to her splendid blog TOKEN CERAMICS to keep up with what is new out the kiln. These bowls will be available at the last IHEART Market this Saturday, so make sure you scoop some up for yourself or for Christmas gifts (or both!).

  7. I'm ceramics crazy (in a "arrive at the Rondebosch Potter's Market at 7.30am" way). I have never seen Carla's stuff in Cape Town, but I LOVE. (PS. Please don't disqualify me for being in Cape Town - I'm prepared to pay the shipping on all these gorgeous items if I win :-)).
