Cycling Coasters and prints, seconds and overstock SALE

CoastersThursday 8th October – Thursday 15th October

One of the joys and frustrations of handmade work is that every item is a tiny bit different.  Occasionally too different!  For every kiln full of coasters I make there is always one that does not obey the rules and ends up a strange colour, with small marks or bits missing at the edges.  These are my “seconds”.  Over  the last year I’ve collected quite a few and am planning to sell them over the next week.

The Plan

The plan is that over the next week I will post images of my seconds coasters on Facebook. I will do my best to photograph them accurately.  It is up to you to zoom in and see the flaws.  All coasters will sell for £5 each.  For orders £10 or over postage is free.  If you want a coaster simply write “sold” underneath its image.  At the end of the week I will add together any coasters you have ordered and send you an invoice.

I also have a few too many of some of my prints – I got a bit over enthusiastic with orders in preparation for events I was selling at.  These prints are available online for the reduced price of £25 each rather than the usual price of £45.

New Tour of Britain 2015 Collection

I have crossed the border to Lancashire and one of my favourite cycling areas for my latest Tour of Britain collection.  This set of four coasters depicts the second stage of the race which starts this Sunday (6th September) in Wales.  Stage 2 takes on some of the challenging hills around Pendle and the Trough of Bowland, fab cycling country.  My four new images are Clitheroe (the start of stage two), Whalley, Dunsop Bridge (centre of UK) and Pendle Hill.

I am officially launching all four images today as coasters and prints at the WI Centennial in Harrogate.  They are also available in the Platform Gallery, Clitheroe, Puddleducks in Dunsop Bridge and via my online shop.
