Issue 12 on sale
It hardly seems possible, but this month marks our first birthday! The past year has flown by, and ClayCraft has gone from strength to strength, thanks to you, our readers.
We believed that there was a demand for practical content, but the response has been overwhelming, and we’re very grateful for all the support we’ve been given, and the incredibly positive feedback we’ve had. If you’d like the chance to tell us even more about what you like about the magazine, what you’d like to see more – or less – of, then why not take part in our reader survey, and be in with the chance of winning one of five £10 Potclays vouchers. Click here to go to the survey and let us know what you think.
In this issue, we have a few projects that would make lovely presents for Mother’s Day (11th March). Slip-cast mugs, which re-use the mould we made in the last issue, are a great way to create multiple versions of the basic item, which can then be decorated in many different ways – you could use the Volume index to find the different surface decoration methods we’ve used over the past year.
The windowsill planter could be made-to-measure, and planted up someone’s favourite flowers or herbs, and we have two vase options too. These are both based on a simple slab-build, but different treatments of the top radically alter the look and feel.
WHS is now stocking ClayCraft in even more of its shops, so if you’ve found it hard to find your copy in the past, it should now be much easier. To find your closest stockist, go to seymour.magzene.com and just enter your postcode. They can reserve a copy for you, at no extra cost, and all you have to do is ask them.
We’d like to congratulate Hannah McAndrew and Doug Fitch on the birth of Fred, and I look forward to meeting him out and about at the shows this summer!
