FEB 2012 and alot has happened already!

January 2012 we launched our latest pattern at the HOME2012 show in London. The show was a great experience and we got to meet old and new customers, everyone was pleased to see us again and loved the new product. It was all a bit last minute as my prototypes were hot of the kiln the day before we set off to build the stand ! I hope you like the stand, we spent most of the Christmas holiday doing up the larder cupboard and searching for the right table.

A week after the show I spend an exciting day at Maison Ojet a trade show in Paris, I'm really hoping to show there in the Autumn as it's such a great event.

Then two weeks after that...phew !.... Little Walton Bank showed at a major international trade show in Frankfurt. We managed to exhibit with the ENGISH ECCENTRIX'S.... a group of like minded individuals that support ceramics that is Made In England, specifically stoke-on-trent.

not the greatest shot but......
I guess the big news is ....I have decided to give up my full time position as Design Manager at Denby Pottery to concentrate on my own Little Walton Bank. It's big news as I've worked there for 18years but I just haven't got enough hours in the day to keep everyone happy, including myself . Luckily for me Denby have decided to use me on a consultancy basis so I'll still be working with them and Burleigh Pottery in my capacity as a design's time to be brave and show the world what I'm made of !

OH and I nearly forgot we won a @TheoPaphitis #sbs RT on twitter , so we'll be going to meet him in march with all the other #sbs cool is that ?!

If the rest of 2012 is as full on as January and Febuary we are in for an exciting year......
