Two New Artists Join Our Website This Week! Ken Eardley and Cath Ball.

Ken Eardley's range of fun but functional Jugs
Two Ceramic Artists have joined our illustrious group of artists this week. Coincidently, both of them worked with textiles before coming to ceramics. 

Ken Eardley now creates a fun and graphic range of functional ceramics for kitchens and interiors.  His pieces are handmade glazed earthenware which are fired three times and are made using press moulds. Leaves, Birds, Flowers, Fruit are his trademark designs which are distinctly recognisable. Because Ken's work is so popular, customers have to wait one to two months for an order. But here at Cherry Picked For You, we are going to stock some of Ken's gorgeous products so we will be able to dispatch them immediately. Although, there will be some items that you will have to wait for as we cannot stock everything as Ken's range is very extensive and every design is made in nine different colours, namely: aqua, baby blue, chococlate brown, green, lime green, orange, pink, red, turquoise, white and yellow.

Cath Ball is a young British designer-maker. She graduated from Cumbria Institute of Arts with a BA Hons in Contemporary Applied Arts and now works from her own studio at home.  Each of Cath's pieces is handcrafted using fine white Porcelain clay which is fired to 1260 degrees. She draws inspiration from the texture of fabrics such as lace and combines this with simple forms and colours. The main colours she uses are inspired by the sand and the sea.

We are so excited to have both these Ceramicists on CPFY. We now have a total of TEN Ceramic Artists on our website. So this is definitely the place to shop if you are looking for that  unique gift for the special person in your life or as a treat for yourself and your home.

Have a great weekend. The sun is shinning and it looks set to be a good one. Living a couple of hundred yards from the sea we shall spend Sunday watching the runners in the Brighton Marathon run along the seafront.

Best wishes, Nina
