:: Collections #5

West German Pottery and a pair of Gresley canisters, stamped TG GREEN & CO UK.

I have done a Google search on these canisters but nothing has come up, only the very popular Cornish Blue Striped ware. I have tried Etsy and pinterest-Nothing?
If you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know?

Yesterday was not the best day I had planned :(

I came out of "Field Trip"2012 brimming with ideas of a stunning career in the design/craft world! 
I had created a logo in Illustrator, planned a photo shoot and all this before I even left the building!
(it was a very inspiring event)

but when I arrived at the opening of the pop up shop, there were no Owls.......weeks of planning and making to a tight deadline, at the expense of family time, school commitments, housework etc
I thought this commission deserved my best efforts!
And.......nothing :(
I left quietly, had Nando's and went home to a hot cup of tea!

I'm sure they will go up eventually? and hopefully I can share some pic's then.

I am so grateful for all the well wishes and support, from you lovely ladies! 
With that in my heart and after much thinking (sulking) I have decided to "suck It up" regroup and focus on creating new designs, create a craft identity and see what I can do on my own.

Onwards and Upwards!!



  1. What do you mean no Owls? Didn't they put any of yours out?

  2. What?
    I don't get it Pippa. That sucks! Big time.
    I'd be needing more than a cup of tea after that disappointment.
    I will proudly hang my ouchflower piece when it arrives, that's one "exhibit" spot guaranteed.
    I bought you a book today btw, it's called Macra-Medley (1979) I found it in our local oppy. It's awesome. I can't believe some of the stuff they made in macrame - there's even a macrame curtain! It will definetely bring a smile to your dial. I'll pop it in the post on Monday x

  3. Oh no, how disappointing :-( Hopefully it's just a wee misunderstanding and it'll go up soon. x

  4. Surely it was just a mistake on their part that they will correct soon. Your name was on the list, so they wouldn't have left your items out of the shop intentionally.

  5. Thanks everyone, I expect they will feature soon enough as you say! I had hoped they would be shown opening night. The place was packed and all the walls were covered with framed works, I believe the owls would of been a nice textural element amongst all the hard edge lines. I will keep you all posted on any developments!
    Huge thanks to you Kylie, your spoiling me! Xx
    And the support you have shared with me, means a lot! Xx

  6. Awwww, Pippa! Do keep us posted. That's so disappointing. I love your owls so much. >_<
